N. Kato may change how and when citizens can speak



“They all take citizen input,” he said of cities. “It’s just a matter of how they go about doing it.”

The June 3 public hearing on the matter is June 3 at 7 p.m.

In other action during Monday’s hour-long meeting, the council:

* approved a plan to spend about $55,000 in federal money, about 70 percent of it on rehabilitation of single-family homes. The city’s over-arching plan for this money was also amended to allow some of it, $8,340 to be exact, to be spent on citywide planning.

* set bicycle routes in Lower North. In addition to a stretch along Nicollet Avenue, the routes run along north-south streets and will be marked with signs and perhaps on-street markings.
