Monona City Updates CORRECTION

The oh-so-popular Monona Drive Sidewalk Width Question will be back on the council agenda on Monday, October 12 and October 19.

It will NOT be on the September 21 agenda.

Talking about this issue is so much fun, we just can't let go. By the way, the 2011 construction schedule for Phase Two is already in serious jeopardy.

By the way, during discussion of the Phase Two design, the Monona Drive ad hoc committee compromised at 8' (down from 10') and reaffirmed the 8' width on two other occasions.

Ten feet, eight feet, six and a half feet, six feet, oh how many feet you meet. Is Dr. Seuss writing our agendas?

In the house, and on the street, how many, many feet you meet. Up in the air feet, over a chair feet, more and more feet. Twenty-four feet. Here come more and more and MORE feet!
OK, let's go for 24 feet!


The police union signed the two-year agreement for 2009-2010. The furlough issue has apparently been resolved by one officer voluntarily agreeing to sit for 15 days without pay.


  1. This is crazy. The best line from Dr. Suess here is "here come clown feet."

  2. WELCOME to mediocreville!

  3. I was impressed by the actions of the one officer. Thanks for resolving the issue in one action.
