Ryan: If the Emergency and Social Services Committee recommended green roofs as the way forward who or what stands in the way? Is the hierachry standing in the way of the voices that imply grassroots "leadership"?

My recommendation is to let the people vote, never mind the bureaucracy telling us what we need.

Why not clean up the brownfields, invest in infrastructure, like the sewer systems, roads, transportation which would allow for new green technology to be interested in our area, since we supposed to be de-industrializing. But the people need jobs that pay a living wage or more, not service sector, box store jobs that pay minimum wage that does nothing for the local economy.

It makes sense that the city should of been maintaining the building, can the people ask for the records pertaining the the maintenance records? Are the people privy to this information? Can we have an audit or analysis done on these expense reports?
