We had some laughs, we had some tears, and we had some detailed recaps of city council meetings in St. John’s. Now it’s time to ride off into the sunset.
Reminder that if you want gossip, the absolute best place to look is at the Building Permits and Development Permits lists.

We are told that the City “values the input” of the inclusion committee on winter sidewalk clearing… but clearly not their actual quality of life.

Council is also moving to get space adjacent to Bannerman Park for a mobile food vendor to lease. Do you hear that, taco trucks?!
