14 this week!
Whoa. The press missed some of the best parts!
Man, I miss Warren Onken. The council ended up, to me, looking like whiny kids who didn’t get their way and voted more about who they like or don’t like instead of on a good policy and no one was able to craft a reasonable compromise. Who would believe after all the marching around the capital the council wouldn’t vote for a .5% increase in pay for some employees who got a 1.5% increase (not police and fire) instead of the 3% (police and fire) increase others got? Seriously?
I have only the time I am sitting here to do this, so it is what it is.
Things on this list and anything that the public shows up to talk about or an alder decides to add to this list. So, just about anything, but here’s the start of the agenda.
I didn’t check my email before I posted and there are 5 more changes already.
This is what might be the city week ahead. 9 of 36 meetings start after 5:00. Starting at 4:00 or 4:30 seem the most popular, hope you’re not interested and work until 5:00.
A few details still being finished up, but we are ready for a ribbon cutting! Please join us Saturday at 2:00 at 304 N. 3rd St. (2046 or 2050 E. Johnson in your gps).
Late yesterday afternoon, Personnel and Finance posted that they would be having a meeting today at 5:00. Scuttlebutt is that there will be a whole series of amendments to remove Huber fees and then take money from some non-profits and get rid of the housing position, and TRC may have an amendment too. Here’s what I know.
Blogging this morning from the floor of the city-county building, the scene of yesterday’s ridiculousness.
Will tenants in Dane County outside the City of Madison no longer have tenant services available to them? Dane County Board votes on Monday, public can’t speak to give input on this latest amendment.
