Big Progress

Tonight was one of the best nights I have had on Council in 6 years. In the Finance Committee, which I chair, we asked the City Manager to do the following:take the pet licencing fee and use it to pay for low cost spay/neuter for low-income citizens, stop increasing the utility cost share to the art programs like Performing Art Studio and the Firehouse Art Center, add $5000 to the CART budget to fund fares for low income citizens and we authorized the Manager to use the Emergency Reserve to fund temporary housing for the homeless in bitter cold conditions.

I am proud of my committee for supporting these ideas I brought forward tonight, all in just over an hour. A good night to show for Norman.
