With the obvious exception of potentially major controversial items such as a curb-side recycling program, most of the decisions City Council makes on a routine basis are pretty hum-drum and boring. While they are very important to the people most directly affected by the decision (for instance, subdivision applications), they don’t have a lot of appeal for most people. And that’s been especially true the last two Council meetings. I was hard-pressed to find ten general-interest decision items from the April 16th meeting, and the April 30th meeting was even more routine and uninspiring (again, with a couple obvious exceptions). So that’s why I’m rolling two reports into one, and posting a summary of the Top Ten Decision Items for both meetings in April. And I will post just one Council Matters report in May as well- I’ve heard from some of you that one newsletter a month is enough to keep you interested in the decisions of City Council.
