5/14/2018 Workshop Digest

Hi, Neighbors. We had an Aleppo Workshop Meeting on Monday night and I wanted to tell you what happened.

Our recording started slightly into the meeting, so the first few minutes weren’t recorded and–for some reason–we captured audio only. (I know I keep saying this, but help is on the way as far as the quality of our recordings go … we placed an order today for new gear that should make our recordings much better!) If you want to watch the meeting from the beginning, click here. Otherwise, feel free to click the links below to jump to the portions of the meeting that are of interest to you.Several of the items discussed below will be voted on at our next meeting on Monday 21 May.

One final note of some excitement!–Aleppo Township got a surprise callout yesterday on “The Pittsburgh Local News” podcast talking about our system of streaming our meetings on YouTube. It was very cool! While I caution everybody that this podcast occasionally contains adult language, to hear what they had to say about us, go to: https://samleonardlocal.com/podcast then listen to the episode dated 17 May 2018 and scroll to 23:23 to hear the story we’re on!

Our next Legislative meeting will be on Monday 21 May 2018 at 7:00 PM at the Township Building. If any of these issues are important to you, please feel free to join us and voice your opinion. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, please feel free to share your thoughts with me by email and I will be sure to convey your feelings to the other commissioners.

Thanks!
