Ann Arbor Council Adopts Priorities

Ann Arbor city council priorities for the next two years, adopted as part of a consultant’s planning session report, will include fiscal responsibility, public safety, infrastructure, economic development and affordable housing. The council voted at its Jan. 7, 2013 meeting formally to adopt consultant Julia Novak’s report – based on a Dec. 10, 2012 planning session that she facilitated.
