Lowell City Council Agenda Oct. 21 2014

Here’s the Link to this week’s Council Agenda.

A couple of Items that caught my attention:

VOTES FROM THE CITY MANAGER
Vote-Cancel Council Meetings 11/11 and 11/25/14

I understand Canceling the Veterans Day meeting but why the Tuesday before Thanksgiving? Most of us in the private sector work.

Councilor motions:

This one should get John McDonough fired up!

C. Leahy/C. Kennedy – Req. City Mgr. update City Council on report on police vehicles dated July 10, 2013; as well as requesting Supt. of LPD explore possibility of allowing Lowell officers living in the City be able to take cruisers home after shifts.

A Good Idea from Councilor Belanger to help the downtown businesses during the Holidays:C. Belanger – Req. City Council approve a program which would allow two free weekends of parking (November 28 and 29; December 19 and 20) in downtown garages.

Here is the complete list of Councilor Motions:

9.1. C. Leahy/C. Kennedy – Req. City Mgr. update City Council on report on police vehicles dated July 10, 2013; as well as requesting Supt. of LPD explore possibility of allowing Lowell officers living in the City be able to take cruisers home after shifts.

    Like you, I can see the need to cancel the Veteran’s Day meeting- but the Tuesday before Thanks giving, no way. I really like the free parking incentive. Nashua has some sort of “Stroll” before the holidays. Maybe Lowell could look into something similiar, with special sales, caroling, Cocoa and / or hot soup, and art displays by local artists.
