Right now I can see some meetings in legistar.Since its election day, I’m guessing the Monona Terrace Booking Event Assistance Advisory Committee doesn’t know that they can’t have their meeting.
I can also see there are two meetings, but there aren’t agendas yet:– Madison Policy Department Policy Procedure Review Ad Hoc Committee – Thursday at 5:30 at the Urban Leage– Sustainable Madison Transportation Master Plan Oversight Committee (Madison in Motion) – Thursday at 5:00 in Room 300 of the Municipal Building.
