More City Council stuff

Did John Moak have a dedicated parking spot?

The City Council on Monday is going to do something that may result in the Mayor getting a dedicated spot on Green St.

Actually, it's an ordinance so I would guess it's a new thing. Ordinances have to have 2 readings and be published so ... whatever!

I don't necessarily object to this; it's not right in front of City Hall and the mayor shouldn't be wasting time driving around looking for a parking space.

That reminds me ... my old boss (in Boston) used to screech up in front of the bldg. and one of us (usually a man) would run out and take the car to the parking garage down the street for him. I got to do it once; he had this BMW with a racing engine. Best car I have ever driven, even if it was for only 2 blocks.

It was like butter, people!

Mayor Moak used to park behind City Hall, next to the police marshal's car.

Yeah, Dick, it should have been ... and thanks, Ari.

I seem to recall seeing a sign designating the spot back in The Day. I think Lisa Mead was mayor.

Hi Gillian,

See Sec. 13-167.1 of the City Ordinances. Dated 2-9-98

the mayor has always had a spot on green street.

OK ... my mistake. The action is to DELETE the designated space on Green St. from the ordinance. So sorry (and thanks for pointing me in the right direction, James).
