I suggest a preliminary agenda gets sent out a week before the meeting.
Afterwards, Council members make sure they've read up on everything,
asked all their questions and posted initial opinions at least three
days in advance. Then, assuming satisfactory answers to all of the
above, a decision can be reached in the meeting with little discussion
-- and going over one hour shall not put a stop to it.
To make sure this happens, I suggest that any Council member who
does not post their preliminary opinion (which can include a list of
questions that they consider unaddressed, and which can change as new
information becomes available) at least two days before the meeting is
counted as not being at the meeting for slacker purposes.
Emergency measures can still go in later, if necessary, and if
responses aren't received to questions then measures can still be
postponed -- the procedure needs to be flexible and can be ignored
