Billions and Billions of Bills
City councilors began the April 4 meeting an hour early, shunted 14 bills to a land use meeting and slogged past the 10:30 p.m. deadline, but the last few weeks' backlog of bills just piled higher. The single thing councilors didn't discuss, having vented earlier at an afternoon press conference, was the current APD ruckus.
Councilor Michael Cadigan's bill allowing the council to change silly, misspelled or insulting street names as long as no structure has been built on the street passed unanimously. Another Cadigan bill allowing safety covers on residential swimming pools combined with four-foot high walls as an alternate to six-foot walls passed 6-2; Councilors Sally Mayer and Tina Cummins opposed.
