City Council roundup
There was a City Council meeting last night.
You can download last night’s agenda here (PDF). Just five items on the regular agenda, and all of them were continued or moved to the consent agenda.
Recaps and resources
- RVAGov is a thing that exists. Run by UR students as a part of the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement, they hope to “provide a platform to educate and empower full participants in Richmond City Government.” Read their preview and recap of last night’s meeting.
- Of course you’ll want to read the RTD’s Graham Moomaw’s recap as well–he is a paid professional after all. It’s mostly a discussion of how much say the City has in the upcoming Stone Brewing Co. development.
- Also of note: Council approved the Flying Squirrels’ lease through 2016.
