From the Council Memos, Rising Sales Tax Receipts and Good Grades for Code

Council's off this week and next for spring break -- which, for Mayor Tom Leppert, includes a trip to D.C. early tomorrow morning to, yet again, ask Washington suits to expedite the stuck-in-a-ditch Trinity River project. After the jump, you'll find the batch of memos that ushered the council out the door at the end of last week -- a rather interesting stack of papers in which City Manager Mary Suhm celebrates the first increase in sales-tax receipts collected since the beginning of the fiscal year, code compliance hands out report cards for February, and Assistant City Manager A.C. Gonzalez addresses the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program.
