Fine, But Where's "The Men of the Dallas City Council" Calendar? Schutze Wants to Know.
Frank Librio at Dallas City Hall breaks the bad news: "Due to budget considerations, the 2010 City of Dallas Calendar and Annual Progress Report will not be printed this year." Which is especially heartbreaking for Schutze, as this year's calendar features the winning entries from the Trinity River Photo Contest. Fret not: You can snag the calendar here (ooooh, there's a council briefing on October 13 -- which is also International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction!).
And the 18-page year-in-review is right here. Makes for an interesting recap, and it's full of intriguing nuggets. As in: "Economists, business publications and other experts predict that Dallas is among a few cities poised for a swift recovery; probably within two years." And: "Over the next five years, nearly 39.5 percent of the City's workforce will be eligible to retire." And: "Stone Core Films produced over 90% of the Hasbro Toy line commercials in Dallas this year." Wonk wonk.
