Message from Steve:
To ICON Members and Participants
We had a great turn out at our June meeting and a very informative discussion of the current efforts to prepare an ordinance to enforce time limits and fines for problem properties. Since the meeting, Gail, Doris, and Cory have met with mayor Houston to explain our proposals. The mayor has asked that we give his two newly hired enforcement lawyers and appointed corporate counsel a chance to review the recommendations. We’ll get an update on the status of the ordinance at our July 25th meeting.
We will also start a discussion on the current process of collecting garbage. Polly Poskin will review the recommendations proposed by a special committee that has reviewed the process.
As a follow up to the recommendation we each commit to attending a council meeting, I’m asking you to confirm a date you would be able to attend on a regular bases. Respond by e-mail or sign up for a date at our meeting on the 25th.
