Cleveland City Council will vote this evening on an ordinance which will designate $2.5 million for the Republican National Convention in 2016 and will provide assurances that the city will be spic and span and (one suspects) safe once the Republicans and their various media coteries arrive.

During a lengthy council session Wednesday morning, the city’s Chief Corporate Counsel Richard Horvath outlined the provisions of the ordinance, which include: making available for use any city-owned property as a possible venue, expediting the city’s elaborate permitting processes, creating comprehensive traffic and security plans and technology and telecommunications plans, and guaranteeing that all construction in Cleveland’s central business district will be completed before the convention begins.

UPDATE: Council passed the ordinance (880-14) at a meeting Wednesday evening. – Cleveland Scene

  • WAIT A MINUTE!!!! (0.00 / 0) Is that a typo, or does Cleveland have 900 city counsel members?!

    whew… I think I just figured out that it is an ordinance proposed on August the 8th 2014… One can hope, I thought that was the margin of support
