Here's TAPinto Summit's summary of the Council meeting Tuesday 4/16/18 and my 3 thoughts:

1. Hats off for all members of the City staff and for Council on passing a municipal budget with 0% tax increase. It's a truly amazing achievement and we should all be grateful and proud.

2. There's no easy or simple way to address our parking problem. I think most can agree that a step in the right direction would be making it easier to find an open spot in front of the wonderful restaurant or store you'd like to patronize. I think the ordinance that was passed will make that more likely. I probably wouldn't have believed that changing the rate would actually work, but when we consider that this method was extremely successful with the Deforest lots, I think it's worth a try. More than once, Council has revisited issues and that is always an option if this solution doesn't work as intended.

3. Summit's downtown is graced with several pieces of art. I love some and have considerably different feelings about others. Regardless, when I walk or drive by I usually find myself talking about them. For Summit Public Art that means the mission was accomplished. I think we're lucky to have a group dedicated to expanding our minds through the power of art. Murals are on the way!
