THANK YOU to the entire #BTV City Council, for sending a clear & strong message tonight to the state & to the UVM admin, that BTV will not tolerate poor treatment of UVM employees. 💚
This is basically the only way a snow day could get any better. ;) ❄️

Yes, we've had way too many video meetings since the pandemic began. Yet, sometimes I look forward to them. It's nice to see people that I normally wouldn't see. There are some people who are your "work acquaintances." They're not good friends who you're going to reach out to outside of work. But they're pleasant people who are nice to interact with. In the pandemic you may have seen them very little. At least you see them in a meeting sometimes.

Sidewalk between 148 and 140 Howard St is badly deteriorated: City Sidewalk Snow Plows kind of crash into & over it every time they go by (making it worse), plus that can't be good for the City-Plow.
--Maybe add it to city sidewalk repair list for 2021?

- On street parking violations
Carshare on North St. @N. Union. As often, parked in the wrong or both spots. Still there this morning.
Even if it were parked correctly, the general public parking spot in front of this new Carshare spot is too small for regular sized vehicles and is therefore constantly unused. Would somebody please investigate and rearrange the signs?!
