What you may not know: Week of December 22

As you might imagine, the holiday week is a quiet time for the Appleton Common Council and its committees. All of our regularly scheduled committees are taking the week off, although three have rescheduled their meetings and still have business to conduct before the full council meets again on January 7:

  • The Safety & Licensing Committee meeting scheduled for Thursday will instead be held at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 30. The full agenda has not been released but will include a review of the decision to temporarily remove one local company from the city's towing list.
  • The City Plan Commission meeting scheduled for Monday will instead take place at 4 p.m. on Monday, January 5. Action items will again include a request to re-zone the former site of the Woolen Mills for a planned residential development.
  • Finally, the Community & Economic Development Committee will hold a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 7, immediately before our regularly-scheduled full council meeting. Their agenda includes a request to approve the purchase of two lots in the Northeast Industrial Park.
And with that, this blog is off for a couple of weeks for the holidays. I'll be back on Monday, January 5 with a preview of that week's council activity. Until then, I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.

You can see agendas for all of this week's meetings and the full schedule at the city's Legistar page.

Keeping you informed on issues that may impact you around the city is one of my primary goals as an alderman. Making the council's activity as accessible as possible to as many people as are interested is part of my goal to make it easier for more people to get involved with issues that matter to them.
