Snow up, Garver Building Re-Use Committee down

UP: Snow. Madison's snowfall total exceeds 100 inches, eclipsing the record of 76.1 inches set in 1978-79. The city normally averages about 50 inches of snow a season. And forecasters say more is on the way.

DOWN: Garver Building Re-Use Committee. The city team at long last decides between two competing proposals for the old feed mill, recommending an arts incubator run by Common Wealth Development. But six of its eight members - the dissenters were chair Bill Barker and Ald. Larry Palm - felt the need to go into closed session to hash it out. The group cited an exemption for negotiating the purchase of public property, but essentially admitted its real goal was to speak candidly. Our candid reply: Secrecy taints the process.
