Third Goal Setting session.

The Ypsilanti City Council held their third goal setting session this evening.

Presentation by Stewart Beal

Mr. Beal presented an update on the Thompson Blok in Depot Town. Beal said that the Depot Town merchants were opposed to one of his earlier tenants. Beal said that Kircher was suing him in four different counties. Beal also said he was offended by an email sent by Council Member Pete Murdock (Dem, Ward 3). Beal said that he thought the City was his partner and he didn’t know that he had to address individual concerns. Beal also said that he would meet with any Council member.

Murdock in his remarks said he asked Mr. Beal for a meeting and showed an email where Beal refused to meet with Murdock. Beal said he did not remember the email.

There was about five minutes more of back and forth discussions between Council and Beal.

Goal Setting with Dr. Joe Ohren

Council then resumed their goal setting discussions led by Dr. Jow Ohren from Eastern Michigan University.

This meeting is always interesting as it is a round table with each city department head as well as the DDA and Housing Commission give their perspectives on budgets, services, and goals.
