1.) I had EXACT CHANGE to pay for my soda water at Alfalfa's
2.) A cute puppy licked me on the hand
3.) Councilman Sam Weaver is wearing a bolo tie
He is reading a declaration about the 100th(!) anniversary of the Boulder Rotary Club.
Pretrial (Black + Latinx ppl are more likely to be detained pending trial than white ppl with similar criminal histories)
Going over a variety of issues facing people experiencing homelessness.
City Manager Jane Brautigam: You will be getting a report from the police chief. At that point is when we'll be releasing body camera footage.
Carr: Chief plans to summarize his decision in written fashion. He doesn't usually do a report.
As I wrote earlier this evening, the NAACP wants to pick the task force members.
Here's what the task force will recommend to city council, no later than Oct. 31:
Number and qualifications of members of the oversight board; Manner of appointment of the board members...
Also wants a person who is/has experienced homelessness, someone identifying as LGBTQ+, an indigenous person and someone who has been incarcerated.
Young: I don't want to preclude someone who might be very eligible. I'd say give priority to ppl who haven't been, but I wouldn't say be exclusionary.
Jones: I like the idea, maybe we can provide childcare. But this could set a precedent. We don't pay our boards and commissions and they spend a ton of time.
Young: Let's offer the stipend on an as-needed basis.
Jones: Maybe not call it a stipend. We'll cover costs...
Young: Reimbursement is after you've spent it. That doesn't work for some ppl
Weaver: We can do reimbursement before
Brautigam: We can ask members to estimate their needs and give them a check in advance.
Yes, Brautigam said, but I read that as a private communications.
