2 <br /> Ms. Leah Puryear, 2415 Kerry Lane, thanked Ms. Edwards for traveling to <br />th <br />Roanoke to present the proclamation for the 40 annual Links conference. <br /> <br /> Ms. Betty Mooney, 201 Sunset Avenue, thanked Mr. Taliaferro for all he has <br />done for the City. She said it is dismaying that Albemarle County will not pay for the <br />dredging study, but she is also glad because the City can take control of the study. She <br />suggested that Kevin Lynch or Dede Smith be assigned to follow this issue. She said that <br />the RWSA attorney has a conflict regarding his argument that dredging is too expensive. <br /> <br /> Mr. Daniel Bluestone, 501 Park Hill, enlisted the support of Council to support a <br />th <br />resolution recognizing Mr. McIntire’s birthday on May 28. She said Mr. McIntire has <br />th <br />had a profound influence on the City, and this would be the 149 anniversary of his birth. <br />She said if the City does not recognize it this year, he suggested that he be recognized <br />next year. <br /> <br /> Mr. Richard Lloyd, 1825 Locust Shade, said Albemarle County should pay for the <br />water expansion they need. He said the City will be okay for years. He said there is a <br />water plan in the RWSA agreement, and we do not need a new one. <br /> <br /> Mr. Brent Nelson, 707 Nelson Drive, opposed the request to demolish the house <br />on Riverdale Avenue. <br /> <br />COUNCIL RESPONSES TO MATTERS BY THE PUBLIC <br /> <br /> Responding to a question from Mr. Taliaferro, Mr. Jim Tolbert, Director of <br />Neighborhood Development Services, said that a letter was delivered to side street <br />businesses informing them that the hanging signs do not meet ADA requirements, and <br />they were taken down. He said the idea was to go back with wayfinding signs, but that <br />was not satisfactory to businesses. He said temporary signs in the form of sandwich <br />boards were to be used. He said that after hearing the concerns of the merchants, he will <br />put temporary signs up as soon as possible, and will meet with side street businesses to <br />discuss what can be done. <br /> <br /> Mr. Huja asked if the idea of putting something in front of the signs would work, <br />and Mr. Tolbert said that can be explored, but it will probably not work for all <br />intersections. <br /> <br /> Ms. Edwards thanked Mr. Gaines for talking about graduation rates, and thanked <br />100 Black Men for work on the achievement gap. She said she is intrigued by the <br />information about McIntire Day, and suggested doing it next year, to include the history <br />of Washington Park. <br /> <br />CONSENT AGENDA <br /> <br /> <br />Mr. Norris removed the resolution supporting the UnJam Plan from the consent <br />agenda. <br /> <br /> On motion by Mr. Taliaferro, seconded by Mr. Huja, the following consent <br />agenda items were approved by the following vote.
