CM Gisleson Palmer

 

MESSAGE FROM COUNCILMEMBER PALMER

First of all, let me just say that I’m thrilled to be back and serving District C. Since taking office three weeks ago, I have hit the ground running and working to fulfill several of my campaign promises. I tackled the city’s short-term rental program at the first regularly scheduled council meeting. My approved motions are the first step toward changing how we issue permits and who can receive them. In addition, the City Planning Commission will be required to include community feedback by hosting a public hearing as part of the process to revamp the program.

This flies in the face of what was originally promised to Algiers.
