  1. The city code of conduct is an for political cover by the Mayor and Mayor pro tem. Anyone who cares to read section 2 of LB Municipal code will find laws which have been in effect for at least 50 years describing how disturbances at council meetings are to be treated and the responsible officers for their enforcement. A disturbance by either the audience or by a council member can result in a misdemeanor. Also the meetings should be conducted by Roberts Rule of Order. Additionally the deportment of city officials should be above reproach in both their public and private affairs. And yet councilman Blskeis allowed to bully and denigrate citizens calling them idiots, liars and worse when he is at the council meetings. Like I stated the new code of conduct is a sham. It has no penalty forcouncil members such as Blake. ,
