I missed it yesterday but Curtis Tiano took this photo of the first four people to park their rear ends on the new outdoor seating at the Goodbye Blue Monday.
L to R front: Alex Beeby, Jane Moline, Justin Stets, Rick Estenson. They were supervised by GBM co-owner Dan Riggins.
There is a Philadelphia connection to these seats but I don’t know what it is. Vet stadium seats?
Pages 1-43 of today’s Council packet (a very badly composed PDF) has the Ad Hoc Finance Group’s list of recommendations for cutting City of Northfield expenses and increasing revenues. The Hospital, NCRC, and Rural Fire appear to be targeted for the biggest changes.
Members of the group included: Lee Runzheimer, Bill Cowles, Curtis Tiano, Steve Meyer, Bron Scherer, Fred Rogers, Doug Crane, Paula Carlson.
The recommendations are grouped into 6 areas (‘exhibits’ in the report): 1) Northfield Hospital; 2) Northfield Community Resource Center (NCRC); 3) Rural Fire Service Agreement; 4) Alternative Non-tax revenues; 5) Carleton and St. Olaf Colleges; 6) Northfield Public Library.
Posted to the Nfld News site yesterday: Cost-cutting, revenue-increasing ideas to come before council.
