|Petters? Tom Petters? Never heard of the guy. |
Nazca? Huh? Software, really?
Sounds more like one of the casino tribes.
This Petters fellow, was he from the Nazca tribe?
Latest on Met Council, aside from its former head, this link. This brief early quote:
[...] the 3,600-employee strong Met Council casts a long shadow in the seven-county metro area.
The agency, comprised of three separate operating divisions — transportation, environmental services and community development — oversees 600 miles of regional sewer lines, collecting wastewater from 106 metro communities, two million residents.
[...] All told, Metro Transit bus drivers, mechanics, transit cops, supervisors and clerical workers total more than 2,500 employees — the bulk of the Met Council workforce.
In the area of community development, 94 metro communities participate in the Metropolitan Livable Communities Act (LCA). Under the program, cities agree to provide affordable housing in order to vie for development grants.
City of Andover Mayor Mike Gamache, whose city, unlike 13 other cities in Anoka County, does not participate in the program, said Livable Communities has been a point of discussion with the council.
