There is not a lot that jumps out at you at first glance when you look over this morning’s Birmingham City Council agenda, well, not necessarily…
The council is preparing to take action based on an earlier pledge to deal with some of the rowdier clubs in the city. The revocation of the Continental Ballroom‘s license is Item 1 – front and center. According to this report in The Birmingham News last month, there have been 101 incidents at the club in the past year.
Item 14 establishes new seats on the city’s Benefits Review Committee, sure to be a result of the continuing budget process taking place. Item 15 provides $25,000 to Vulcan Bike Week at the Birmingham Race Course (incidentally starting tomorrow and running through July 3). Item 16 makes investments in the infrastructure of two of the city’s cultural institutions, the Birmingham Museum of Art (chiller and alarm system) and Sloss Furnaces.
The meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. and you can watch live (or archived) via the city’s website.
