up with anything better than what shes he said of his recently hired administrative who made her first public council presentation Council members took the first step on her first recommendation when

that much she and the city wouldnt have an expensive paving For the rest of the the green space would be Councilmember Barbara Tieken proposed trying the extended noparking zone on a temporary and having an emergency ordinance to that effect for reading at the next Chunn told her it wouldnt look good to have a temporary measure labeled an that it would be better to go for the normal three But
