Councilmember Tim Burgess, a former Police Officer, is chair of the City Council “Public Safety, Human Services and Education” Committee.
His latest newsletter “Stop Youth Violence” can be found on his blog, and contains many sensible suggestions. Note especially:
Later this week, on Friday, the City Council will discuss the Mayor’s proposed Youth Violence Prevention Initiative. We are likely to approve elements of the Mayor’s plan, accelerate some parts, and slow down other parts until more details are known.
Budget meetings on Friday are 9:30 a.m. – noon & 2 p.m. – 5 p.m
