Yeah I know mate, I don't think there's an ulterior motive, or something sinister lurking behind the article, just fancied sharing really and getting a discussion going.
The duties of the commission would include evaluating the risks and benefits of potential encounters with extraterrestrials. The city also would have to publish on the city's website evidence and testimony regarding extraterrestrials on earth.
The thing is people do have genuine fears. Just because they are unfounded doesn’t mean they aren’t scared.
I would also question their ability to do anything about an alien invasion. What are they going to do? Squirt water at them?

the council will have emergency plans for most things that it can see such as fires/floods/earthquakes/invading forces from another country etc etc but when marvin the martian lands theres so much unknown that all the plan would say is "1. " since the information on such matters isn't handed down to lowly people in places like councils

LIVERPOOL leaders have been forced to admit that Merseyside is woefully unprepared in the event of an alien invasion. The glaring defence issue was revealed after a concerned member of the public put in a Freedom of Information request to Merseyside Police, Fire Service and Liverpool Primary Care Trust. The question, registered on the website whatdotheyknow.com, asked: “Can you please furnish me with any and all information held by yourselves relating to plans to deal with an alien invasion? “By alien, I mean a life-form that evolved on a planet other than Earth, and travelled here by any means possible.” Merseyside police admitted they had no such contingency though pointed out that emergency legal powers could be applied if flying saucers were to threaten the city.
