Wow. Let the jokes begin. I can’t believe they set themselves up like that!!! giggle, giggle, giggle. All joking aside, why would the council have a surprise special meeting for only one issue with 8 alders appearing by phone and the mayor and three alders missing. . . hint: it’s got nothing to do with a referendum on legalizing marijuana.

Police Haters?!?

Ok, I’ll take Chris Rickert’s bait . . .

When does the Parks Department Kill Wildlife?

Posted May 23rd, 2017 @ 8:00 AM by

Here’s the policy to be discussed today at 4:30. I have to say is shockingly short and lacking details. This will likely be decided by this committee and the Parks Commission and not to go to the full council.

Common Council Recap (Livish)

Sorry, I’ve been 2 – 3 jobs at Tenant Resource Center since last August and blogging has become a luxury . . . . I see a light at the end of the tunnel, but I”m half expecting to get hit by a train. I hope to be back to more regular blogging by budget season . . . but we’ll see. I have 28 days of vacation to use up!

Anything you show up to speak on, plus the following. The rest passes in one motion – bing bang boom!

What Laundromat is Willing to Serve Homeless People

Posted May 16th, 2017 @ 11:14 AM by

Long story short, on May 5th the Bubbles Laundry Project got locked out of 701 E Johnson St. We switched to 306 S. Brearly and today . . . we got locked out of there too. Setting aside the illegal discrimination against people based on homelessness as a protected class, where can we do laundry Friday 9 – 1 where homeless people can easily get to and where we won’t get locked out??

Lawful Order = Accountability

Posted May 16th, 2017 @ 7:21 AM by

Chief Koval has another memo about the Council’s report on changes needed in the police department. He seemingly says he’ll do everything they want, but he wants them to change the language so it isn’t a “lawful order”. I sure hope they don’t. They’re voting tonight, email them if you have thoughts (allalders@cityofmadison.com).
