From what I can tell, here’s the City Council agenda on Important Issues of the Day:
1.Â Â Â Â Â Â New Newspaper Racks Downtown.
2.Â Â Â Â Â Â Turn off Downtown Lights Late at Night.
3.Â Â Â Â Â Â Puppies are Cute!
4.Â Â Â Â Â Â Blah
5.Â Â Â Â Â Â Blah
6.Â Â Â Â Â Â Blah
7.Â Â Â Â Â Â Oh yeah, reduce crime. Mostly by juggling numbers.
