  1. I would be interested to hear if any of the council members, like Mike O’Brien, make a statement regarding the new report on the transportation levy. Especially with regards to the cost of bike lanes, which looks to be over $10 million per mile.

    1. I’ll keep an ear to the ground. O’Brien has a Sustainability and Transportation Committee meeting on Tuesday; they haven’t published the agenda yet, but I’d be shocked if he didn’t speak to it. He might even schedule a hearing on the report.
