Another year is in the books, so what better time than the final day of the year to look back and see what turned out to be the most popular posts of 2014.
An illness and the holidays teamed up to give me some time off but we’re back now with the first poll in awhile. It often comes up in reader discussion and comments, so here goes:
City Council recently awarded an $850,000 contract to continue planned upgrades at the city’s water treatment plant on Westfield Avenue.
About two dozen people spoke before City Council on Monday night, drawing one of the largest crowds to a public hearing in recent memory, for an ordinance to expand the Special Improvement District (SID), including supporters, opponents and others pleading for more information and time to consider the impact.
After nearly an hour of public comments that ranged from support to opposition to delaying for more time to discuss and understand the issue, City Council approved expanding the Special Improvement District (SID) from the downtown area (138 properties) to all commercial properties citywide (closer to 440 properties).
