This Week at City Hall

There will be some meetings this week at City Hall (and beyond), so here’s a list of what’s up and why you should care. 

I would love to see more people covering these meetings.  If you don’t have a blog, and you don’t care to have one, but you would like to go to a meeting and write a summary of what happened, email me and I’ll post it.

I’m also looking for someone who’d like to do some research into the Wheels-to-Water program.  Send me a note if you’d like more details.

Monday, May 24
5:30pm — City Council Standing Committee on Public Health and Human Services Meeting, City Hall, Esther Howland Chamber.
Why should I care?  The agenda seems pretty boring for a city that’s had as much upheaval in the public health department as ours has.

5:30pm — Zoning Board of Appeals Meeting, Levi Lincoln Chamber.
Why should I care?  They’re going to be discussing four new items:  44 Byron Street (changing wireless antennas); 38 Flagg Street (building larger garage); 108 Canterbury Street (Randell Package Store) to build a one-story storage structure; and 97 Houghton Street (subdivision of lot).

Tuesday, May 25
5:00pm — City Council Standing Committee on Public Health and Human Services Meeting, Levi Lincoln Chamber.
Why should I care?  If you know what “FY 2010 YEAR 36 CDBG, HOME, HOPWA, ESG” means, I’d love to know!

6:00pm — City Council Standing Committee on Traffic and Parking Meeting, Esther Howland Chamber.
Why should I care? Eh.  Not a lot on the agenda.  My 90 days might be coming up soon, though.

7:00pm — City Council Meeting/Finance Committee Meeting.
Why should I care?  The meeting will mostly be about the Fy2011 Budget.

Wednesday, May 26
1:00pm — Upper Blackstone Water Pollution Abatement District Board Meeting; 50 Route 20, Millbury, Board Room.
Why should I care?  Personally, I’d love to hear about these meetings. 

6:00pm — Mayor’s Work Group on Job Growth and Retention, Levi Lincoln Chamber.
Why should I care?  They’re looking for input on how to retain and attract small businesses in the city.

Thursday, May 27
7:00pm — Historical Commission Meeting, Levi Lincoln Chamber.
Why should I care?  They will be discussing two items: to demolish all of 95 Grand Street, and some changes to 15 Chestnut Street (replacing the roofing, replacing steel windows with aluminum, and changing the veneer).
