Here is the link to the media release for the extraordinary council meeting to be held tomorrow morning. It’s at 10am, at the Beckenham Service Centre, Colombo St. It’s a council meeting, so if you have time and want to come along, it’s your democracy, so participate. Nice that they’ve given the public less than 12 hours notice – and most of you will probably be sleeping for those 12 hours! It’s the new climate of transparency and openness that Bob has been talking about.

I think I better get some sleep.
