A few items of note for tonight’s meeting:

  • Lots of talk about the upcoming budget (but no talk about how it hasn’t been reduced by 25% like “mayor” Zimmer promised…)
  • A million bucks for misc. fire & police apparatuses.
  • And borrowing $12 million on the credit card to pave Washington St. (which will be riddled with potholes soon thereafter…)
