Tweeting Greensboro City Council meeting live

Tonight I'll be tweeting live from the Greensboro City Council meeting. Follow along for short updates at @yesweekly.  At this point, council is already through its consent agenda and is on the first public hearing agenda item.

Council will be voting on the city budget tonight, as well as the tree ordinance aimed at adjusting Duke Energy's tree-trimming practices for power line maintenance in the city.

Just a moment ago, council approved a public hearing to revisit the noise ordinance on July 16, with Councilwoman Marikay Abuzuaiter voting no because many young professionals and students who care about the issue are out of town during the summer.

Full coverage of the tree ordinance decision and the city budget will appear in the June 26 issue of YES! Weekly.

UPDATE: Council didn't finish meeting last night and hasn't addressed the budget yet. It will resume at 2 p.m. today (Wednesday) and yours truly will be there with Twitter updates again.
