Ann Arbor City Council Preview: 8 September 2020


Happy September gentle reader. Did tonight's #a2council meeting sneak up on you? It snuck up on me. Here's the agenda

The evening kicks off with a 12 item consent agenda. Though it looks like CA-12, "Resolution to Approve Increasing the Purchase Order with Washtenaw County for SWAT Supplies ($26,469.09)" has been pulled. CA-11 looks interesting, it's a resolution to create a temporary childcare fund for city employees. This seems like a good thing to do. 

There are three public hearings on the docket tonight. PH-1 is the second reading of the short term rental ordinance. My guess is that a lot of folks who own Air B&B's will be speaking at this. PH-2 is on a resolution to approve the site plan for a hotel going in at 361 West Eisenhower Parkway. PH-3 is on the Valhalla Annexations. These are 17 parcels on Valhalla Drive which is just south of the intersection of Scio Church and Main.
