Goal: Pass a Street Tree Ordinance
Comments: In short we not only got it done, but took out some dumb language that was inserted to pander to special interests. Personally I nagged and nagged because I knew there were some that were looking to delay or derail the process as they had done for 6+ years.
Bob Nowicki gets the credit for starting the process and fighting to keep it moving. The final ordinance passed 4-3 or 5-2, I am not sure what Dennis Hanson’s take was on the final language. I believe he was supportive.
