City Council Meeting tomorrow

The City Council will be meeting tomorrow night.

As has been the case for the past few meetings, there are quite a few slots-related items on the agenda.

We frequently remind people — and it always bears repeating — as a member of the public, you have the right to speak for up to two minutes about any item(s) appearing on the agenda.

You can approach the podium when “Items of Public Interest” are announced by the meeting chair (usually near the beginning of the meeting).  While you do not need to let anyone know that you will speak beforehand, you can let the Mayor’s or City Clerk’s Office know before the meeting if you prefer.  It helps to know the number(s) of the item(s) you will be speaking about as well.

Please come to the meeting, even if you won’t be speaking.  It will likely be more riveting than “City Council Meeting: The Play“, and the tickets to this show are free!

Default font

Have you ever created a typographic masterpiece and then sent it to your printer, only to discover there’s been a postscript error . . . and your lovely font choice defaults to “Courier“?

One hopes that that’s what happened here at a business on Grafton Street:

courier1 courier2

Because the only other possibility is that they chose to use Courier on their awning, and that’s the stuff of nightmares.
