Addressed as a question to Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker:

With the recent uproar over the now-reversed garbage disposal ban, it was clear to many of the citizens that that particular decision was not researched to any degree, neither technically nor politically. Many citizens of Raleigh are now concerned that many other decisions are similarly being created in a perceptive vacuum, and the level of trust between the citizenry and its government is at a very low level. What do the mayor and the city council plan to do to restore trust from the citizens and to enlighten the decision-making process?

You just got told!
