Tonight's City Council meeting should be quick and fairly painless. The only item on the agenda is the appropriation of the $250,000 in riverboat funds for future use.

I must agree with Kay Garry on this one. She was quoted in the "Tribune" as saying that it would take 40 to 50 days to get the appropriation approved and certified if the council found a need for these funds. And we all know they will.

This money is not going anywhere, I don't see why 4 members of the council Mr. Coffey, Mr. Caesar, Mr. Price, and Mr. Gahan voted against the appropriation plan. It just seems logical that the funds be ready and waiting for future projects. Every project must be voted on anyway.

I guess we will just have to wait and see how it goes tonight. See you there.
