Veterans' Day, Council Agenda on City Web Site
On his CLIPS blog, Dan took it upon himself to embellish my blog post by saying the move was the first in 83 years, a detail I was unaware of, and that it would be inside the Veterans Center, something else I did not state because the developer's agreement says the Veterans' Center will be turned over to the city only after all the residential condominium units are sold. I wanted to check further on the details.
The agenda for tonight's City Council meeting is on the city web site, but City Council President Rashid Burney also posted the resolutions and ordinances on his web site. One item is a layoff plan with no details made public. This needs to be explained at the agenda-fixing session.
The council is expected to give approval Nov. 17 retroactively for a street closing Wednesday. The flier I received says there will be a "mini-parade" on East Front Street starting at Roosevelt Avenue and proceeding to the Veterans Center at 400 East Front Street. Free music, giveaways and refreshments are also promised, along with performances by the Plainfield High School ROTC and marching band, along with a gun salute tribute, special presentations and prayers.
Tonight's meeting is 7:30 p.m. in City Hall Library, 515 Watchung Ave. The regular meeting is 8 p.m. Nov. 17 in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave.
