Proposal would guarantee Boston residents the the right to a City Council hearing - if they collect 250 signatures

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 19:26:53 +0000

City Council President Michelle Wu is proposing an ordinance that would require a council committee to hold a hearing on any issue backed by at least 250 Boston residents.

The "free petition" proposal would be similar to a section of the state constitution that requires legislators to introduce bills submitted by their constituents - just with a requirement for signatures.

Wu credits community activist Jamarhl Crawford of Roxbury with proposing the idea - which she will ask fellow councilors to go to a committee for study in a motion at this Wednesday's council meeting.

She said several other cities in the state already have such ordinances. In a statement, she said:

This ordinance will provide another outlet for residents to get involved in influencing policy and public discourse in Boston. One of the Council’s most important duties is to provide a platform for community voice. Codifying the right of free petition will ensure that the City Council is as responsive as possible to the issues facing families across the city.

The council's regular Wednesday meeting begins at noon in the council's fifth floor chambers in City Hall.

Nothing illegal about being a bad neighbor in Boston, city declares

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 19:20:05 +0000

In response to a 311 complaint about some Massholish parking on G Street in South Boston (person consistently parking "between a driveway and a handicap spot" and basically taking up two spaces with one car), the city says:

There is no violation for being a bad neighbor. Sorry.

Could get back to near 70 on Wednesday, possibly followed by snow over the weekend

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 14:40:22 +0000

The National Weather Service is looking at temps near 70 by Wednesday, which the forecasters note is "well above normal." Also, the balmy temps could be accompanied by lots and lots of rain, possibly in the form of thunderstorms.

Then, of course, since this is New England, we could get some snow over the weekend, possibly in the form of two fast-moving "clipper" storms.
