Mayor urges council to allow curfew center

You're schedule is blown, big time. You're reasoning is not clear as well.
Mayor urges council to allow curfew center 'We were on schedule to open the curfew center on May 1 of this year,' Mr. Ravenstahl said. Because of council's 'continuing delays, now we can't meet that deadline.'
The city works best when the typical process of spending money is followed. A bill that goes before city council must have a public hearing if it is requested. One is slated. Then, after the public hearing, the bill can advance.

If the mayor wants quick passage of the spending of $500,000 -- then he might be asking for a chance to pull the wool over the eyes of the citizens without due process.

There is no proof that the $500,000 is going to save one person's life.

Can't believe Pedutes is backing him up on this.

Bill Peduto does not have a kid. Perhaps that's why. ???

I sorta believe it. Peduto thinks that gov can solve more than it can.

The whole campaign finance reform effort -- at the very first go-around, years ago, was about no-bid contracts and pay to play. Peduto's gang of 30. Well, I told him and it came to pass that you fight no-bid contracts by ending no-bid contracts -- not with some weird campaign finance reform that says if you give the max you can't get a contract.

Same too for curfew. If kids are slashing tires -- they are to be picked up. That's not a curfew problem. That's different.

If adults are scared to be on the street at 1 am, make it illegal to be on the streets??? No. Take back the streets. I don't want to be out then either. But, if I am, I don't want to be guilty in an automatic fashion because of the time of day / night.
