NEXT DAY SERVICE!!!
There were several important issues hashed over at this meeting. The $33,000.00 proposed closing of North Bank Street, The proposal to extend the police early retirement incentive for the command staff, and the Housing Authority's changes to the Hope VI plan.
The commentary was lively and informative.

Just a note: There were only three City Council candidates in attendance Ken Brown (on Council), El Warner, and Roger Ruggles. To us this is a honest measure of commitment to be a City Council member. Mr Brown has a very good attendance record (he missed one last year to honeymoon). Ms Warner and Mr Ruggles are both members of the Home Rule Charter Commission, and their attendance is also admirable (the HRCC meetings are many times long arduous affairs).
We see the continued absence of Bill Timmann, Peter Melan, and Jeff Warren as indicators of both their ability and willingness to actively participate in the resolution of the City's issues.
