Pedestrian/bicycle bridge feasibility study
Funding sources: DCNR grant $40,000; Northampton County grant $60,000; City funds $40,000 = $140,000
As promised, here is the back and forth between Councilman Callahan and Councilman Reynolds.
At City Council the debate opens with longish comments by both parties, then 3 instances of sparring.
At the Budget Hearing, Councilman Callahan probes Mr. Alkhal for items that the City is behind on, and 6-7 minutes in to the conversation he hits on ADA ramps which look like will be the subject of his budget amendment transferring the $40,000 from the pedestrian bridge line item.
The clips are longish but worth listening to.
We can learn a lot about each Councilman.
The narrative is like a short story developing.
Gadfly likes to lay these things out for you first.
What are you thinking?
ADA ramps (be sure to listen to Mr. Alkhal’s description) or a pedestrian bridge study?
