City Week Ahead

Posted June 23rd, 2014 @ 8:21 AM by

Get done with work at 5:00, you’ll make it to exactly 4 of 23 (17%) meetings on time . . . we are going backwards with this. I guess equity means nothing, and their report is hogwash. Yeah, I said hogwash. They seem to be trending the wrong way . . . Let’s pretend you can make it to a 4:30 meeting, sill would miss 7 of 23 meetings, 30%. Notice, when a neighborhood schedules a meeting, they are usually at 6:00 (See University Hill Farms)

– Authorizing the Madison Police Department to apply for and accept a FY2014 COPS Community Policing Development grant of $100,000 for the purpose of enhancing community policing outreach through expanded youth programming and hiring a civilian community resources coordinator to reduce arrest racial disparity and improve trust and perception of fairness through partnerships, organizational transformation and problem solving (And I hope this means that they might take a long hard look at the way they treat rentals and landlords and their policies that help evict people, but I doubt it.)
