Another Death This Week: Silly Call-In Procedures

Posted August 29th, 2014 @ 1:36 PM by

Makes me cringe with all the bad news and changes for homeless folks right before a holiday weekend when they feel forgotten and left out. This one is a good change, but change is hard for anyone, and for some folks, change is extremely difficult. Leads to increased anxiety and instability. But, this is a good one! Just wish the official news wasn’t coming out today

Something that is not Dead . . . Yet.

This supplements the handout I reported on yesterday. This is the briefing for the council (only David Ahrens and Anita Weier showed up, Lisa Subeck appeared at the end of the press conference) and the press conference that was held yesterday. (with BK comments)

Yes! The Mayor and the staff that worked on this plan get a HUGE thmubs up from me . . . let’s see how the council and the community do?! Let’s hope the predictions of the mayor that the council will say this is not enough are true!

Pilot Organics Program Dead?

So many projects dead or dying this week . . . this one comes with a good, but slightly ridiculous explanation, seriously, $120,000 in the capital budget? Methinks high jinks are afoot! Ah, budget games!

Wow. Council President lack of Judgement!

Wow. Just wow.

Judge Doyle Square Dying? Or Dead?

Posted August 26th, 2014 @ 8:14 AM by

So, I’ve been hearing it is dead, watched the council list it repeatedly as something to cut from the budget, and saw the memo late last week . . . and all indications are . . . well, not good for Judge Doyle Square. Yesterday’s Board of Estimates meeting was another clear sign things are not going well. Can’t say I’m too sad about that, we have better things to spend our money on.
