#a2council preview

A yearling buck in Ann Arbor Township
Tonight at 7pm is the second Ann Arbor City Council Meeting for October. The agenda does not look too dense. There's one public hearing on site plans for a DTE substation at 2551 South State Street. The site, which is situated between State Street and the AAPS Balas buildings, is currently a DTE substation. I don't anticipate many comments from the public during this public hearing.

The agenda item that is likely to draw the most public comments is CA-16, "Resolution to Approve Amendment No. 1 to Contract with White Buffalo, Inc. for Combined Surgical Sterilization and Sharpshooting Management Services for the City’s Deer Population." I *think* the reason that this is just on the consent agenda is because the item comes from the amendment from last year's approval of the contract for services with White Buffalo. Perhaps someone who understands City Council process better than I do can clarify that point.

  1. My understanding is that this amendment will not add any new cost – it’s just a shuffling of previously obligated funds. If it required new funds it would probably have to be discussed.
