Acting Economic Development Director Shilvosky Buffaloe didn’t even have time to make it into the City Hall before Council President Carol Hill-Evans declared Tuesday night’s City Council meeting adjourned.
In just seventeen minutes, Council members, pledged allegiance, voted and approved three agenda items and left the building — quite possibly setting the record for fastest public meeting ever in the City.
Three potentially thorny topics were listed on a revised budget published today. Not only will council be discussing booting, but also Gamewell boxes and mobile food vendor licenses on Continental Square.
There’s also another item up for discussion — a bill amending article 181 “General Provisions” to establish that individuals may only serve on one City board or commission at a time — which came up during public comment at a meeting earlier this month.
In anticipation that I will never be able to leave Council Chambers at 101 S. George St., I’ll be stocking my bag with provisions and water. Are you planning to attend?
Here’s a run-down on our coverage of these three issues.
