A SHORT PRELIMINARY BLOG

Six Councilors attended the Agenda Setting Session, and slightly more than a baker's dozen were in the audience. Non the less the meeting was full of fireworks which will take another  later Tuesday blog to discuss since the hour is late, and I have an appointment Tuesday morning.

As expected the proposed Ordinance creating a Motor Vehicle manager was again  rejected. In  due respect to the Council the Administration did not provide adequate documentation why this would be economically in the best interests of the city.

The big discussion was about an Ordinance which in effect  granted the proposed Developers of the South Ave. project a 30 year PILOT program.
By a vote of 3:2 with Councilor Brown abstaining this too was defeated. This will be the focus of my blog late Tuesday or Wednesday.

    1. Since you have already sent this to Bernice and I do ot know whom else's blog you are lobbying for those on the Council who object. It would be nice if you would ID yourself. Have you considered that both can be needed fpr progress? It is the details that is important.

  2. It seems to me 8:47am doesn't understand the benefits of a pilot development to the city. Or maybe they can make the rest of us who do get it understand what is wrong with it. If there is no justification perhaps they have another reason why they would spread that message.
