At last night’s Town Hall Meeting on the City Budget held at the Senior Center, there were 14 people who braved the weather to come hear stuff. The major focus of the meeting was supposed to be on what cuts / priorities would be in the upcoming budget, but residents mainly voiced their opinions about property taxes and the growing disincentive to developers and homeowners to invest and remain in the City.
The poor attendance can most likely be attributed to the City’s decision to hold the event the same night as the 10th Annual Pop Trivia Night at the Ypsilanti District Library. My team failed to win again, coming in 2nd for the third time. All questions used for the event were culled from books in the library’s collection. Sadly there were too many Star Wars and Star Trek questions raising the issue of whether or not our local library has a proper mix of reading material.
If you’d like to help remedy this issue, you can donate to the YDL by filling out THIS form. The fewer books about Star Trek and Star Wars our library has, the brighter future we can expect for our children.
