City council blogging, week two

[Deirdre Fulton guest-blogging.]

Only two things worth noting this week:

11:40 a.m.: Council President Michael Flaherty bangs the gavel --- only 10 minutes late, a great improvement from last week! Councilors Ross, Feeney, Murphy, Turner, and Kelly are missing (Kelly gets a pass, obviously).

12:09 p.m.: Paul Scapicchio is stepping down, and he wants to make sure someone takes his place before budget process begins. Preliminary special election scheduled for May 16, general election will take place on June 13, new District One councilor to be sworn in by the end of June. Scappicchio hopes for a "robust race."

The meeting ended at 12:15, with Flaherty wishing the chamber a "happy, healthy, and safe Evacuation Day."
