Alder Rummel’s Updates

D6 Items of Interest Week of October 23, 2017

October 22, 2017 8:07 PM

Highlights: Operating budget amendments proposed by the Finance Committee will be voted on Monday. If adopted, they become part of the budget that is presented to the Council in November 13-14 for final approval. The Council has another chance to propose amendments for both the capital and operating budgets before the final vote is taken.  Imagine Madison, the public engagement process for updating the Comprehensive Plan, is holding three sessions this week, please pay attention to this process as it will inform guidelines for neighborhood development based on community input. At Ped Bike Motor Vehicles Commission Tuesday, the Atwood reconstruction project will be reviewed as well as traffic signal priority and stop sign lists will be discussed.  I am scheduling a  neighborhood meeting on Nov 1 to hear the proposal for a tap room at 308 S Paterson.

Thanks to Virginia Kravik, the crossing guard at Willy and Thornton and engaged parents for reaching out to me, City Engineering will install a flashing light at the intersection in the coming weeks to alert drivers to watch out for pedestrians using this crossing. Also MPD will assign patrol officers to monitor this intersection during rush hour to ticket speeders and drivers who run red lights.
