BY MICHAEL KIMBALL email@example.com • Modified: October 9, 2012 at 10:20 am • Published: October 9, 2012 Reporter Michael Kimball live tweeted from the Oklahoma City Council meeting Tuesday morning. Read meeting and agenda updates below. @OKC_Beat 8:38 a.m. Howdy folks, time for another #OKC Council meeting. No Ed Shadid and no Pat Ryan today. @OKC_Beat 8:39 a.m. Check out the agenda and watch live video at links here: okc.gov/AgendaPub/meet… or watch on Cox channel 20 @OKC_Beat 8:41 a.m. OK, we can also talk OU-Texas RT @stevelackmeyer: @OKC_Beat BORING! @OKC_Beat 8:41 a.m. Shadid is here, still no Ryan though. @OKC_Beat 8:47 a.m. City Manager Jim Couch is up there. Assistant CM, former Police Chief M.T. Berry is in his chair. Don't know if I've seen M.T. there before. @OKC_Beat 8:55 a.m. Right now, Councilman Skip Kelly is asking about an item related to vehicles impounded for violating a nuisance ordinance. @OKC_Beat 8:56 a.m. The actual item is authorizing the city to lease space for a place to store those vehicles, but Kelly is asking about the program itself. @OKC_Beat 8:56 a.m. It's an ordinance that labels certain kinds of activities as nuisances, and the car can be impounded for 90 days in some cases. @OKC_Beat 9:01 a.m. Councilman Larry McAtee interjects to remind everyone this program was created after drive-by shootings on police officers. @OKC_Beat 9:02 a.m. Use of a vehicle for prostitution purposes is also one of the things that can get a car in the impound. @OKC_Beat 9:03 a.m. Kelly is asking about what happens if someone uses a taxi. @OKC_Beat 9:04 a.m. Citty says that there are lots of ways to protect people who own a car who aren't the ones using it for a crime. @OKC_Beat 9:05 a.m. Citty (Police Chief Bill Citty) says it's not one thing that deters crimes, it's multiple things that you can do to deter it, and this is 1. @OKC_Beat 9:07 a.m. Citty says street prostitution is up, but points out it could have been higher without this. Hard to tell if it helps based on stats. @OKC_Beat 9:08 a.m. Anyway, it all passes as part of the consent/concurrence/etc. part of agenda. It was just for a storage facility for existing ordinance. @OKC_Beat 9:20 a.m. On to items from council. A brisk meeting today. @OKC_Beat 9:23 a.m. This meeting has been particularly light on news. There was an item today about Stage Center that could have been newsy, but it was deferred @OKC_Beat 9:25 a.m. The item would have approved a recommendation that Stage Center should be considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. @OKC_Beat 9:29 a.m. Councilwoman Meg Salyer got to go to an Oklahoma Caring Foundation where Magic Johnson helped raise $30k, donated $25k more. @OKC_Beat 9:31 a.m. Wow. The city council meeting is already over. That's the fastest meeting I've seen in about 15 months of covering the council. @OKC_Beat 9:31 a.m. RT @stevelackmeyer: More on Wednesday’s Google Hangout, the Health Sciences District shar.es/5ypcL via @ShareThis 0 0 0 0 Submit Letter Hide Comments 1 Tip To Lose Belly Fat Cut pounds of stomach fat every week by using this 1 weird old tip. www.PerfectWeightLossTrifecta.com natural gas Facts Liquefied Natural Gas: A Clean, Safe, Reliable Fuel. www.lngfacts.org Ads by Yahoo! × Trending news Article Oklahoma City Councilman Ed Shadid still fighting to keep past secret Advertisement Trending Now 64484Bedlam football: Unexpected plays, bold decisions lift OU past Oklahoma State 47624Bedlam bowl predictions: OU to BCS Sugar Bowl, OSU to Cotton Bowl? 42519Bedlam football: 'End of the world' loss extends OSU's struggles vs. OU 40928Bedlam football gets chippy after Sooners beat Cowboys 33-24 33676Oklahoma football: Mr. Bedlam (Blake Bell) strikes again 27835Oklahoma football: Grading the returns of Jalen Saunders, 'Riverboat Bob' Stoops and Blake Bell 27329Bedlam football: Why this was the best game in Oklahoma-Oklahoma State series history.
