Tomorrow morning Mayor Mike, City Manager Mary Suhm and the city council will chit and chat about what they hope to get done by year's end. Nothing much -- just things like, "Improve Dallas' standing among safest large cities (1M population) from 7th to 5th." And: "Further develop affordable housing downtown." And: "Bring the citywide Complete Streets vision to reality, including implementation of the bike plan." And: "Pass an ordinance creating a Tourism Public Improvement District to market Dallas." And: "Ensure no lobbyist has an advantage at City Hall." Good one.

Such as: "Review the water quality of the Trinity River." Good one.
