City Owned Deck Back in the NewsCity Council voted to resurface two of three City pools. Lawmakers also formally decided on who will serve on a committee to finalize recommendations on the new pavillion at the Thompson Park Zoo. Council also sided with the Planning Board on declining a special use permit for a property owner wanting to exceed the limit for apartments in a Stone Street house.
Council informally agreed to grant a concession certificate for use of the infamous deck on Newell Street and reaffirmed its desire to work with underground enthusiasts on mapping the caves under the City.
It seemed like deja vu night at City Hall as these and a host of previously debated issues came up, including how to handle the alcohol concessions at the Arena as the Privateers hockey team readies for its first season in Watertown.
Even the oft talked about Arena roof came up with Councilman Smith crowing recent leaks prove he was right all along.
Even smoking came up after someone placed 'no smoking' signs at the new JB Wise pavillion. Council gave the nod to the manager to use her judgment in restricting puffing on City properties.
Finally Council gave the go ahead to provide electricity to the traffic island on Holcomb Street where a local resident has been providing seasonal decorations which now include a fountain.
