RES 20-1285 9/18/2020 3:23 PMMarijo Schwiderski Against I entered a comment. It disappeared. I don't know what's going on here, but I asked council members to PLEASE vote against transferring funds from the COMO/DALE/FRONT revitalize funds to LARPENTEUR/RICE area. We haven't seen or heard of any effort to use any funds in the area. Please don't let Amy B. Push this through when funds were earmarked for that much deserved area. Thank you for pausing this vote.
RES 20-1285 9/18/2020 3:12 PMMarijo Schwideski Against I ask each council person to PLEASE deny approval of transferring of funds from COMO/DALE/FRONT improvement to LARPENTEUR/RICE. The COMO/DALE/FRONT intersections need some kind of sincere improvement effort by council members and resent Amy B. from pushing this through. This commercial corner deserves help for revitalization.
