Keep Ypsi Rolling

I attended the Ypsilanti City Council meeting Tuesday night, and was impressed by the presentation made by Laura Bien of Keep Ypsi Rolling. She did a fine job of suggesting alternatives for ending the bus service. There was a grand moment of theater, when she offered the members of the council an opportunety to sign an elarged copy of the petiton, and all of them did. The presentation by Laura Bien is an example of citizen participation in local government at its best. This was followed by committes from the audence, who told of the hardships ending the bus service will cause them. These committes put a human face on the issue.
