“The Portland City Council meeting for tonight (December 17th) has been officially canceled due to expected weather conditions,” stated Portland Bureau of Planning’s Senior Planner Barry Manning.
The 6:30 p.m. meeting to consider the East Portland Action Plan at Midland Library, 805 SE 122nd Avenue has been postponed until after the start of the New Year, Manning said.
By the way, if you were planning to testify at the Thursday, December 18, 2:00 p.m. session of the Portland City Council – stay home. It’s been cancelled as well.
Chain up or get ticketed!
Writing of bad weather, Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Brian Schmautz asked us to remind readers that the Police Bureau will conduct enforcement if surface streets or freeways in the City of Portland are closed to vehicles without chains or traction devices.
“Last weekend, several people ignored warnings and drove without proper equipment,” Schmautz said. “This increases the risk to all road users. Please plan ahead if you intend to travel in inclement weather.”
