Blog/Meeting Roundup, 8/11/08
Posted by whforums on August 11, 2008
Talk of West Hartford posted on the resignation of Town Manager Jim Francis last week and the post and comments seem worth response. Ron Van Winkle steps in as interim Town Manager.
On the Courant’s Greater Hartford Blog, Rachel Gottlieb reports that the West Hartford food pantry is low on food after seeing a surge in need. Leave your donations in the lobby of town hall.
No. Seriously. Leave them there.
Town Council meets tomorrow night (8/12) at 7:30, preceded by public hearings (note the word hearing there, people) starting at 6:15. Some interesting stuff on the meeting agenda (.pdf), including items #8 (certifying the second referendum), #13 (movie theater/alcohol conversation) and #32 (resolution to restore vacuum leaf pickup).
I guess the Board of Ed. met on 8/4 and I totally missed it. Can anyone report?
We’ll have a post later today about the relationship (existent and “should be existing”) between suburb and city in light of the nine eleven shootings in Hartford this weekend.
