Item 1: 2-16-21 Letter from Cinder McNerney regarding General Fund debt model for the City’s Peck School prospective project.

 

Item 2: 2-16-21 MURPHY -- Ordered that the superintendent of the DPW appear before the DG&R committee to try to develop a better communication system notifying residents that their trash/recycling won't be picked up because of a snow storm.  In addition, the discussion should include trying to find a way to get back to the pick up for those residents within a shorter time period.  When considering recycling pickup, a cancellation rather than a postponement means they have almost one month's of materials to store.   Would this be an area where working with ROCA might be able to more quickly recover these services after the storm?
