The Hyattsville City Council will meet in special session on Monday, Jan. 30 to discuss a number of issues. Check out the agendas in this edition of Doc Drop.
Among the items before council this week:
Residential Parking Reversal - Following last week's public hearing on the appropriateness of residential parking restrictions in the 5000 block of 36th Place, Mayor Marc Tartaro has introduced a measure which would remove those restrictions. The restrictions were approved by City Council last October, but at last week's public hearing, a number of residents voiced opposition to the restrictions.
Anniversary Carnival - Under Discussion Items, Tartaro wants the City Council to discuss scheduling Hyattsville's 2012 Anniversary Carnival and Parade. City Communications Director and acting Parks and Recreation Department head Abby Sandel will give a 20 minute presentation on the matter. The carnival is projected to be a four day extravaganza running from Thursday, April 12 to Sunday, April 15, with the parade taking place on April 14.
Budget Discussion Continues - The City Council will also continue its discussion of municipal goals to guide it's budget decisions for the upcoming fiscal year. At last week's City Council meeting, the council got about two-thirds of the way through the 2009 Goals and Actions document which forms the basis for the budget priority discussions.
Arcade Building Update - The City Council will also see four concepts for the rehabilitation of the long vacant Arcade Building.
The City Council meets at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 30 in the third floor of the Hyattsville Municipal Building. The meeting will be broadcast on Hyattsville Community Television, channel 71 on Comcast and Channel 12 on Verizon.
