Today in City Hall

By Jill Terreri

Good morning,

This blog is coming to you from the ninth floor of City Hall, where the Planning Board will begin its meeting any minute, one of many meetings today in 65 Niagara Square. The board will consider plans for a homeless women's shelter on Oberlin Street on the East Side, and expansion plans for the Acropolis restaurant on Elmwood Avenue.

The city's Ethics Board is meeting at 9 a.m. in Room 1317.

At 9:45 a.m., the Common Council's Civil Service Committee will take up three appointments, to the city's Preservation, Water and Appraisal Review boards.

At noon, the city's cat task force will meet in Room 1417.

At 1 p.m., the Council's Community Development Committee will meet and will consider plans for federal HUD grants, such as the Community Development Block Grant.

At 2 p.m., the city's Telecommunications Department's annual report will be considered by lawmakers during the Legislation Committee. A presentation by the department is possible. The committee will also consider new rules for turning in refrigerators in the city for scrap metal and a lower first-time fee for food trucks.
