Got to love Joe Walsh. Only he would address council regarding scheduling a communication. His delivery is brash, but listen carefully and you’ll find he knows his issues, and his passion livens up what can sometimes be very tedious proceedings.

Item #133 – Second reading. Extends a permit given to PSU to create an “Electric Avenue,” basically a bunch of free charging stations for electric vehicles. PSU is going to move the stations to other parts of the city. There is no financial impact to the city.
