Some city residents and businesses are being recognized at this week's council meeting for being Clean, Green and Beautiful. Awards will be presented to residents and businesses that the city feels go the extra mile to make their property attractive and environmentally friendly. There's a variety of criteria the winners could meet in order to be recognized, such as conserving energy, being pedestrian friendly or installing public art.
It looks like city residents may get a new way to follow city council. A report from the city managers office is recommending council move ahead with a plan to stream live video of council meetings on the web. Meetings would also be archived allowing residents to view them at their convenience. The recommendation comes after a positive response to a test run of the service in June.
