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.

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.

Why should I care? Personally, I’d love to hear about these meetings.
