  1. Why Council Meeting on Tuesday?

    Why did the council meet tonight?  I thought they met every other Monday?


    Also, it would be great to get some clarification on Ald. Braithwaite's meeting.  I saw the April 14th date in a flyer distributed by the city as well.

    1. Tuesday meeting

      Every year in April the City Council meets on the 2nd Tuesday rather than the 2nd Monday so the council meeting can be combined with the annual meeting of the township, which, under state law, is required to be held on the 2nd Tuesday in April.

      Regarding the ward meeting, you could call or email the alderman for clarification. My guess is that the date listed on the calendar is correct.
