City Council to voice their approval

Hi, brickers. Writing to you now is a little like drunk-dialing an ex. We know we shouldn’t do it—it only brings up those old feelings—but we miss you. And there’s so much left to say. Such as…

Tonight, City Council will enter its City Hall chambers at 7pm to discuss, among other things, how well the rebricking project went. The council will discuss the goals they set forth at the beginning of the project and how those goals turned out.

City Council’s goals were as follows:

—To complete a quality revitalization of the Downtown Mall;
—To complete this revitalization on time and on budget;
—To do the work without too much disruption to Downtown businesses.

BW is pretty sure the Council will find that the project was an unparalleled success. We’re also pretty sure they should add a segment to this evening’s brick dockett. This segment would, of course, include a viewing of all Brick Watch videos, and some highlights of our brilliant brick coverage. To culminate the segment, they should ceremoniously hand Chris Weatherford a key to the city. (Not the real one, but the obscenely large, fake kind.) There would be laughter! There would be crying! There would be cheers. But most of all, since it’s a City Council meeting, any emoting would have to be taken in turns.
