We have a FBvian embedded with a BlackBerry. I’ll be updating this post throughout the day’s meeting. Check back often. Here’s what’s going on:
10:04 — Overheard: “You can’t make beautiful parks without beautiful people.”
10:10 — Sarah Dodd sitting one foot away from Becky Oliver.
10:15 — The mayor says she listens to KRNB-FM (105.7) while jogging. Who knew?
10:25 — Al Lipscomb making no sense. Complaining about vacant buildings, police pursuits, drugs from the Canadian border, and arson. It’s not easy to lump all those together.
10:30 — Se’Gwyn Tyler complaining about loud music from car next door to her. Thinks the neighbors were mad she hung a flag on Memorial Day. Called 911 about the music later in the evening. Told 911 operator they needed to be ticketed. Officer drove by her house and kept driving without stopping to investigate. Eventually it escalated, she says, but never got to finish because the city secretary’s timer went off. Se’Gwyn, meet Avi. Avi, meet Se’Gwyn.
10:32 — “We’re just festered with drugs over there in East Dallas,” says a public speaker. Tim, Adam, don’t you all live in East Dallas?
10:37 — Angela Hunt not here. State Rep. Terri Hodge inexplicably here. Ed Oakley eating something out of a white styrofoam cup.
10:40 — Angela Hunt late. Just walked in. Dock her pay.
10:43 — Henry S. Miller, who is on some obscure board or commission, was listed as one who hasn’t turned in a financial disclosure form. Maybe he should send in a picture of Highland Park Village?
11:45 — Someone who is a dead ringer for Mary Ann Razzuk is delivering a long-term transportation plan for DART. Angela Hunt drinking orange juice and eating something that is small and white. Powedered sugar doughnut? Baybel cheese? Oakley just picked his teeth with his pinky finger but tried to act very sly about it.
