Mayor Ben Dover hopes to secure this
parking lot on 5th St. to build a skating
As air conditioners still work overtime in Bridge Park, the city council will meet tonight in a special session, to discuss building an outdoor skating rink.  With Winter just around the corner, Mayor Ben Dover wants to get a head start on the skating season and hopes to have a place for skaters to prepare for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Due to the ongoing remodeling of City Hall, the special session will be held in the basement of Walt's Barrel Room Tap & Shot Emporium on 5th St.  The city council members will be served a hot meal prepared and served by the local  PAPS (People Against Porn Skaters) chapter, before sitting down to business.  Walt Sleazy, bar owner will provide free liquid refreshments during the session.  "It's my civic duty." he told Channel 1 News.  The meeting will start around 9 P.M., but Channel 1 News learned most of the council members will be on hand for a question and answer period from 4 to 6 P.M. answering questions from bar patrons about city business.  This will coincide with a shot contest sponsored by  Miguela's Tequila, at the back bar. 
City Council members Kate Wants, Suzy
Will, and Nina Does shown here at the
last council meeting at Walt's, will be on
hand to get things done.
The mayor and council hope to get a lot accomplished tonight and will issue a full report when time permits.  A secondary item on the agenda is the national presidential debates coming up in the coming months.  Channel 1 News will keep you abreast.
