If you have followed this story at all, you know the Council voted to withdraw from the Storm Water Management Agency, pretty much tanking what has been an effective regional vehicle for monitoring storm water runoff into our waterways, and pay Malcolm Pirnie half a million to re-invent the wheel. The Council approved the Malcolm Pirnie contract 4-2 two weeks ago, but it turns out the measure required five votes to pass.
The Council will reconsider a redrawn measure this morning, one that supposedly requires only a simple majority. William Bell was out of town for the previous vote; we’ll see if the former Malcolm Pirnie employee recuses himself today.
If you can get to today’s City Council meeting, go and let your opinion be known.
