If you ever worked on a real estate project, you know it lives and dies, sometimes daily. Today, the project is dead, for now. But the Isthmus just wrote a story that was, in my mind, premature. But hey, maybe someone out there can help us solve our current problem . . .
To Dane County . . . check out this wonderful work.
Uh, don’t hold your breath . . .
Lots of snow updates – basically everything is closed down, but they are attempting to pick up garbage, Madison Metro buses are not running, snow emergency in effect so move cars so you don’t get tickets, Madison schools closed yesterday already, city and county offices shut down, campus in-person exams cancelled, yadda, yadda, yadda.
Call me cynical, but I don’t really believe it. It seems like so many people have different understandings of what the shelter rules are and it appears there is a really good reason for that.
Rescheduled due to the storm and earlier than usual – at 6:00
I’d really like to see all 400 show up and test the alleged rules of the shelter systems that seem to be shifting and don’t seem to reflect reality. If we have a cooling shelter, why not a blizzard shelter?
New rules for the use of surveillance cameras by city departments.
I”m no longer on the board and have had to move on to other things, but I still find the station very worthy of supporting in whatever way you can.
I’m a little concerned after last week that even when you think you know what the agenda is, a committee may or may not act on something on the agenda and if you are concerned they may take action, you better show up. That partial bus fare increase last week shook my confidence a bit. Here’s what I think is coming up this week.
So, I was talking to a friend about her experience taking someone to the hospital because they didn’t want to call the ambulance and pay for the fees and I told her (she has been working with poor people for a long time and didn’t know) that the fees could be waived. She says no one ever mentioned that to her after all her work with hospitals and low-income people. So, I went to find the info on the website and there was none . . . but there is now! (Thank you Sarah Edgerton! And whomever worked on this in the finance department!)
