Last Wednesday, Gossips reported that there would be a special meeting on June 25--tomorrow night--at which the Common Council would once again take up the resolution to declare the proposed sewer separation project, which would direct untreated storm water runoff into North Bay, a Type II action. Over the weekend, Gossips learned from Council president Don Moore that the meeting could not be scheduled as intended and another date has not been decided on.
Meanwhile, the South Bay Task Force came up with an alternative resolution--one that determines the project to be an Unlisted action and would allow the City to consider the environmental impacts of what's being proposed. The alternative resolution was sent to the members of the Common Council yesterday. As Council president, Moore would be the logical person to present the alternative resolution to the Council, but he demurred. He did, however, advise that the resolution could be presented by three members of the Common Council. There is no word yet if three members of the Council have agreed to do so.
