Posted by yinn
The other threads are getting kind of long so use this space to discuss Home Rule repeal, District 428 facilities planning, the city budget, etc. What’s new:
All of the DeKalb City Council (except Ald. Gorski, who has no e-mail) received a copy of this letter appearing in the Chronicle today.
Watch for it: Mark Charvat will soon be announcing the first organizational meeting for supporters of a measure to revoke the city’s Home Rule status
Rep. Bob Pritchard is involved in a measure to provide for recall elections of state elected officials; could this be extended to the local level or not, and if so, is it a good idea? Comments, please.
3rd Ward Alderman Victor Wogen has called a meeting for Thursday, April 3, 6 p.m. in the 2nd floor conference room of city hall. He will be joined by Alderman Keller and if the meeting overflows the room they’ll move it to council chambers.
(sniff) Is it just spring I smell, or are there other changes in the air?
