Didn’t make it to last week’s City Council meeting where they gave away the store? On the latest Transforming Rochester, Dave & I talk about what City Council have done and the horrible way the mainstream media cover it.
We discuss groups who are not focused on by the Rochester Anti-Poverty Initiative: the elderly, the disabled, ex-cons, single parents, et al. My idea to get people working almost gave Dave a heart attack. Let me know what YOU think about it.
Links to some of the things we talked about in this show:
- Expand library hours
- Small business incubator
- Co-op incubator
- Next Great Idea contest
- Individual Development Accounts
- High School Job Program
- Light Rail
- Public space downtown
- Increased recreation program
We didn’t come close to $500 million. What suggestions do you have? (bonus points for a double whammy)
Dave & I discuss the upcoming vote on legislation around snow removal in Rochester, NY. It’s just a money grab and puts liability on homeowners instead of the City.
As heard on Transforming Rochester the week of December 7, 2015, here is information on some of the solutions that are already working around the world that could be done to some degree in Rochester.
