A Matter Of Opinion

Transit bench battle continues

Mayor Mary Verner announced today she'll create a  citizens committee to study ways to place appropriate transit benches at city bus stops in a way that best serves the riders.  The City Council is scheduled tonight to take up an ordinance that would allow benches with advertising on city sidewalks.

There's been lots of conversation about whether bus benches should be removed under the existing sign ordinance, but what do you think will be gained by a new citizens committee?
