A few notes that never made the news:
Those 4 parking lots the City purchased from Frontier so the BCPA has more parking:
What was the cost?
To find out you have to dig deep in the packet – the cost isn’t on the agenda:

The low low cost to make entertaining you easier: $961,000
Do you know what a Road Diet is?
It’s a sweet little name used by Jim Karch to say cars will be getting less lanes so bikes can have their own!
Close to 80% of registered voters choose not to participate in the election, so don’t complain when nobody is using the bike paths that will be created on busy streets (think rain and cold weather, plus few bikers compared to cars) but you aren’t allowed to use the new lanes. That is what happens when the Council passes Complete Streets and nobody is paying attention.
David Hales is funny
During his City Manager comments he mentioned staff is busy trying to implement everything the Council passed in the budget. (Around 2:04:40)
He must be under the impression the Council knows what they passed. Hundreds and hundreds of pages of limited data doesn’t mean a thing. I doubt many of them know what the spending increase has been the last 4 years.
Renner still hates The Grove
Somewhere in the meeting Renner made another snide remark about spending $250,000 to enlarge the pipes at The Grove to make future expansion less costly and less destructive to existing homes. Tari has no interest in growing the local economy unless he controls who, when, where, why, and with your money.
