Rich Mooney, Alderman for Rensselaer's 8th Ward, has just started a web site. This is great news!
Rensselaer's 8th Ward Home
I expect Rich will keep us updated about City Council business, and you should keep an eye on his site even if you don't live in the 8th Ward (the part of the North End which is south of Washington Ave.)
For instance, Rich says that on Monday, July 27 there will be a special Council meeting to try to pass the 2009-10 budget. Learn more on his Upcoming Events page.
