This article is a great summary of the Council meeting on 4/3/18. Here's my 3 thoughts:
1) Grateful as always for our extraordinary first responders and the wonderful community response to the apartment fire Dec 31, 2017. I'm honored to serve with the amazing people on the First Aid Squad!
2) I'm thrilled that two major initiatives are moving forward. Those two initiatives are the Free Market building at the transfer station and the online permit process. City staff balanced implementing and learning the new software at the same time!
3) I was surprised at the resistance to the idea of an economic development committee. It's clear to me that there's a difference in philosophy among current council-members about the role of government. I am extremely supportive of the idea of an economic development committee. We can be proactive or reactive. We can have more people involved in the process of governing or we can have less. For me it's a no-brainer. Our government should be proactive and we should tap into the incredible talent of the people of Summit.
