City Councilwoman Alice Jempsa requested at the council meeting this week that city officials look into creating a policy covering people who offer to paint curb addresses for residents in exchange for a "donation." Jempsa said there have been several such incidents lately in which people offer to paint the address for a small fee, which they call a donation--though the money does not actually go to an organization. Staff members said they would look into creating such a policy.

Residents concerned about a city lawsuit demanding that a popular cafe remove outdoor seating went before the City Council this week to give their views. Debate about the Jabberwocky Java cafe dominated the public comment period at the session. The city is suing the cafe, alleging that its proprietors are seating patrons in a garden area without proper permits. "Ever since that place has opened, we've had problems," said Paul Stevens, who has lived behind the cafe since it opened in 1995.

The City Council tonight will consider enacting an ordinance making it easier and faster for residents to provide child care in their homes. Public hearings on applications for home-based child care will no longer be required under the proposed ordinance, unless there is a request from neighbors who may be adversely affected.

"The teenagers from the high school come out, and they're out there drinking their coffee, hooting and hollering on the patio, then they get in their cars and race down the alley," said Paul Stevens, who has lived in his Old Town West unit with his family for 10 years.

Sexually explicit publications now must be kept under wraps to comply with a ordinance passed by the City Council requiring merchants to keep such material out of sight of children. "We passed something that probably is about as restrictive as we are permitted to have," Councilwoman Alice Jempsa said.
