Week of April 28 Meetings of Possible Interest to District 2

April 27, 2014 2:49 PM

The week of April 28 has items of possible interest to residents of district 2 at the Plan Commission, Common Council, and the Emerson East-Eken Park-Yahara Ad Hoc Neighborhood Steering Committee. The agenda items are open for testimony from the public should you be interested in weighing in.  I also appreciate hearing from you on any items on which you have a particularly interest or concern so please send me an email or give me a call.

Also, committees and commissions have an opportunity at the beginning of each agenda for Public Comment on items not on the agenda.  If you have something you want to share with a committee or commission, you can use the Public Comment time to do so.
