Even the bloggers go on vacation sometimes, and the past two weeks were when this one was away.
Unfortunately, this meant I wasn't even in this time zone when the Business subcommittee met regarding (among other things) the use of that extra teacher money. I've checked in, and they are recommending that the money be used to fund two middle school positions (to the tune of $135K), per the administration's recommendation, with the remainder being held until September, to keep elementary class sizes down.
If you feel the money should be spent otherwise, or have any other interest in this, you might drop them a note before their meeting Thursday.
And that's Thursday, August 21, in the City Council chamber at 4pm.
