City Council Meeting Recap, August 28, 2007
Not too much to report. Not many items on the agenda.
We hope to have a person be in charge of Berwyn's 100th birthday next year. We appointed a Berwyn citizen for now to be that person. Will keep you posted.
Public Works had been given the authority to hire a new Superintendant of Streets. However, the proposed person, who is intensely qualified, was not approved by a 4 to 3 vote. The Mayor appointed him temporarily.
On a 4(1, 6,7,8) to 3(2,3,4) vote, rooftop decks are now allowed on garages. I voted against this. I predict nothing but trouble.
An amendment was made to the handicap parking ordinance. Fines have been increased for those that use fraudulent permits.
Next City Council meeting, Tuesday, September 11, 2007.
