#A2Council preview: Feb. 21, 2017

Because of the yesterday's holiday, the Ann Arbor City Council is meeting tonight at 7:00 PM. The agenda is pretty light. There's the appointment of Alexandra Cacciari to the Public Market Advisory Commission. The Consent Agenda is mostly street closings, Fool Moon, FestiFools, Take Back the Night, SpringFest, Rock the District, and the Mayor's Green Fair. Other Consent items include a contract with SafeHouse for victim support services, an amendment to the City/DDA parking agreement, raises for school crossing guards, and a contract for slope monitoring at Barton Dam.

There are no public hearings scheduled tonight and no second readings of ordinances. There only firs ordinance reading is for 17-0257, which would add a chapter (120) to the city code dealing with the solicitation of immigration status by city employees.

After ordinances come motions and resolutions. There is a resolution, 17-0189, to withdraw objection to the renewal of liquor licenses for Old Carolina Barbeque Company and Nagomi Sushi and Noodles. Sounds like they have probably taken care of their back taxes and fees. There is also a resolution, 17-0258, to install Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons on Fuller Road at the crosswalk by the entrance to Huron and Gallup Park.

All in all a pretty light agenda. It will be interesting to see whether Ypsilanti's or Ann Arbor's city council meeting will finish first tonight. As always, you can follow the meeting on Twitter using the #a2council hashtag. You can also watch the live on CTN.
