Public Meetings for week of 055/10/2010

At the Library Services Center at 2450 N. Meridian Street, there will be public meetings Monday, May 10th and Wednesday, May 12th, at 6:30p.m. in room 226. These are being billed as the Sustainable Library Project. The IMCPL Library Board may be voting on a solution as early as June, so get your input in soon. I'll be going to the meeting on Wednesday.

According to Mayor Greg Ballard's Indy Gov web page, a number of meetings are being held tonight and next week on the Water Utility sale. There will be a general forum at Indianapolis Public School 42 starting at 7:00p.m. Monday, May 10th. Another general forum will be held Tuesday, May 11th at 7:00pm at Southport Presbyterian Church.

In the coming weeks, three Indianapolis-Marion County City-County Council representatives will be holding public forums in their district on the Water Utility sale. Maggie Lewis will be holding hers in the 7th district tonight at 6p.m. at the Pike Township Government Center. I'll be in attendance and hope to here what Pike Township has to say.

Two City-County Council committee meetings will be held this week as well. For your "convenience", they will be held at the exact same time. These two committees are the Committee on Municipal Corporations and the Rules and Public Policy Committee. Those who dare speak for longer than two minutes at Robert Lutz's (R) committee that aren't paid lobbyists will be interrupted by a loud buzzer. The focus of the former committee will be on IMCPL and Indy Go, whereas the later will be continuing their debate on two proposals related to the Water Utilities sale.

School is out and it's slowly starting to feel warm again. That makes it a good time to renew an interest in politics, and keep up with what's happening with your tax money in your own back yard. The most important political actions aren't what's going on in Washington D.C., but is what happens right here in Indianapolis. Do your homework. Read the blogs located on the right hand side of this site. They all come highly recommended, and will tell you much more than most of the mainstream media in this town will.
