On a related note, at tonight's #a2council meeting, they City Council will be discussing modifying the City Charter to shift the main City Council Election from August to November. This would likely involve the August primary being party-less or sending the top two vote getters, regardless of party to the November election.

On a side note, it looks like Monroe City Council meetings are conveniently uploaded to YouTube. CTN, the ball's in your court.

The town is a-buzz with marriage equality happiness. There are plenty of places to celebrate (the Aut Bar and Necto being two of them, obviously!) but we'd be remiss if we didn't at least tell you, dear reader, that Arbor Brewing Company will have happy hour beers all the livelong day.
This is better than that one time that THIS IS BETTER THAN ALL THE TIMES EVER.

I mean, oh no.
As you probably know, Sonic Lunch puts together free lunchtime concerts every Thursday in the summer here in A2. Today's concert is Michelle Chamuel with opener Absofacto. Chamuel was the runner-up on The Voice in 2013, but is better known round these parts, and rightly so, for being the lead vocalist for Ella Riot, formerly known as My Dear Disco. If you're basically a roly poly living under the rocks that live under rocks and don't know what I'm talking about, just know that she's a University of Michigan alumna and her old band is from here.
The concert usually happens right by Liberty Plaza, but due to the possibility of it being rained out, it's been relocated to The Ark. Which, while not as great for folks that want to just walk on by a free concert, is still stupid cool. Because it's The Ark.
Concert starts at 11:30 am!
Thanks to Justin Higuchi for the great pic, which lives with other great pics here.

Public hearings on rezoning parts of Huron Street from D1 to D2Of corse my favorite item is CA-4, Resolution to Approve Purchase of Sodium Hypochlorite for Water Treatment Services from JCI Jones Chemicals, Inc. (estimated $105,706.00/yr). Man, that's a lot of bleach. As always, you can follow along with tonight's meeting using the hashtag #a2council on twitter.
