The Indianapolis-Marion County City-County Council will once again be dealing with the ACS Parking deal in the Rules and Public Policy Committee. The meeting will take place at 5:30pm in Room 118 at the City-County Building downtown. The agenda for the committee notes that it is for "informational purposes only. Final action is not expected at this time."
The committee is chaired by Robert Lutz (R-13th District). Lutz loves to have city insiders and the downtown elite speak for hours on end, showing meaningless Powerpoint presentation and spouting off talking points. And when it comes time for "public comment", he's known to use a buzzer to make sure the public doesn't get more than a minute or two of input into a deal that could potentially last half a century. I don't live in Lutz district and don't know the man personally, but the way he has chaired this committee has been absolutely horrible. I pledge to any Democrat or Libertarian that runs against him in District 13 that I'll support both financially and with my time as a volunteer. This man does not deserve to represent the people of Indianapolis.
