Posted January 30th, 2017 @ 8:45 AM by

Sometimes, this mayor is just a little too much. The mayor’s holding a press conference today during the time the committees doing the work to be talked about in the press conference will be meeting and doing that work.

City Week Ahead

Posted January 30th, 2017 @ 7:19 AM by

22 meetings this week, only 8 are in legistar? So in the future, when you search to see who voted what way or find the minutes, you won’t be able to. Also, lots of missing agendas this morning.

This is what drives most development decisions in the city . . . well, this, and TIF and other government hand outs. Where are we at and what’s next? And how will you get involved?
