On Tonight's Agenda

Besides 69 resolutions and one ordinance, there are several discussion items on tonight's City Council agenda.

The meeting is 7:30 p.m. in City Hall Library.

City Administrator Marc Dashield is scheduled to give an update on South Avenue road construction. There will also be further discussion of getting Board of Education meetings on Channel 74. Councilwoman Linda Carter and Board of Education President Bridget Rivers were at last night's Democratic City Committee reorganization and neither had seen a November meeting that was aired last week. Both agreed it would be better to have more recent meetings shown.

(Rivers won the Fourth Ward primary by six votes, according to official results posted by Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi Monday. Democratic Chairman Jerry green told the committee some provisional ballots are in doubt and attoerneys are working on the case.)

The council will also discuss the transit-oriented study advocated by Councilman Cory Storch and the possibility of getting City Council pages on the city web site.

There will also be a council discussion of a resolution on school funding. The state Supreme Court recently upheld the School Funding Reform Act of 2008 that changes the way education funding is allotted.

Most of the resolutions on the agenda have to do with liquor license renewals. Twenty-two establishments met all requirements. Others failed to pay fees or get approvals necessary for renewals.

The regular meeting this month will be at 8 p.m. June 15 in Municipal Court.
