Today’s council agenda is 44 pages long and includes good news for those in town that were wondering about the status of development in Railroad Reservation Park. It also contains good news for those wanting to see a shorter meaning as a vast majority of the items currently listed are on consent.

Once you finally get past all 31 pages of item one, the first item that will possibly lead to an interesting public hearing is the one that calls for changes to the city’s curfew law, including the raising of fines charged (item 5). Items 14, 15 & 16 are currently on the consent agenda, meaning that there will most likely be no discussion of the contracts Bhate Geosciences Corporation (assessing the retaining wall for the park) and Building and Earth Sciences (providing various monitoring services for the park).

We’re figuring you’ve still got time to tune in to the meeting if you haven’t already…

This battle over the curfew law is dreadful. They're politically afraid to vote down the Mayor's curfew law so they can go back and change it and make it a more complete ordinance. They might be afraid that they'll be seen as soft on crime if they reconsider the details of the curfew law, but they should also be afraid that they'll be seen as bad legislators who don't do their due diligence if they go ahead and pass this ordinance without making sure it's enforceable.
