What the Council Plans on Talking About Tonight

Posted February 25th, 2014 @ 5:04 PM by

Room is filling up fast for the meeting before the meeting, will be interesting to see how it will be by the time the council meeting starts. Also, of note, one of the staff members, who is directly in charge of several of the items on the agenda, just says to another person with a slightly evil laugh “funny how the important issues all end up on the same agenda”. Who the hell is in charge of this?
