The agenda for the May 7th meeting was pretty extensive, resulting in a "marathon" meeting which lasted until 10:45. This is how it went:

R-12-06 Resolution of the Common Council of the City of New Albany Concerning the CBDG FY2012 One-Year Action Plan -Zurschmeide passed 9-0 This was a plan to allocate the Community Block Grant

R-12-07 Resolution concerning Statement of Benefits for Globe Mechanical, Inc By the Common Council of New Albany - Caesar Passed 9-0 (Tax Abatement)

I do agree with all the ideas you've presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time' Thanks for the post.
