City Hall is expected to come before the council tonight to discuss the approaching summer's paving plans, to ask for an appropriation to fund handicap ramps, and to prepare for the likelihood that Steve Price will vote "no" on all of the above while drinking tea at the same time. Puppetmasters of the world, unite.
Meanwhile, at his blog, the council president John Gonder offers extra info for Thursday in the form of a 6:00 p.m. skull session on insurance options.
The Tribune reports that Floyd County and New Albany city officials have discussed a new combined building, with the Coyle property again emerging as a likely candidate for it. Whether there'll be a historic building still standing as prime component for adaptive reuse, as most of the remainder of the civilized world would insist on doing, or whether the demolitionist Poli-Philistines will win again, has yet to be determined.
And, Floyd County Youth Shelter relocation has gotten another nudge. With multiple school buildings standing vacant and begging for (yes) adaptive reuse, rather like the defeated D. Sakel, naturally the most popular plan is to build a brand new building at the former country club, which should be purchased and converted into a new/old bayou to assist with eco-tourism and storm drainage, but of course hereabouts, in this municipality where a ban on logic is the only ordinance regularly enforced, such an idea might be confused with Communism or Obamaism by folks like Dr. Oakengruber ... speaking of which, the President of the United States recently called out Steve Price:
"If the just-say-no crowd had won out — if we had done things the way they wanted to go — we'd be in a deeper world of hurt."
Wait -- seems that Obama was talking about Republicans.
Same thing, right?
