Belle writes: WINA is reporting that the hot topic for tonight’s City Council meeting is the proposed placement of the bus transfer station at the east end of the Mall; this placement is part of a larger plan to redesign the east end of the Mall. WINA reports that City Mayor Blake Caravati is confident that more city residents will support the project and its location once they see the plans.
These plans have been debated for a few months now. Presumably, a vote is going to happen before too long.

WINA is reporting that Council will make a vote on June 27th.
Today’s Daily Progress article by Jake Mooney marks July 1st for the vote (but perhaps these are different votes?):
No, they’re the same vote. I … er, Jake … just assumed that the next council meeting was the first Monday of the month, like usual. If there’s a special meeting on the 27th, though, they likely will vote then. The point of this all, in government jargon, was that Monday was the first reading of the appropriation, and they’ve got to do a second reading at (presumably) their next meeting to make it official.
I hear that railroad train a-coming. Better get out of its way!
I really think we ought to do things like they do in New Orleans: Include on public works projects a cornerstone listing the names of the mayor, city councillors, city managers, and others who caused something to be built. That way they can accept the glory or shame eternally!
