[Live-chat] THURSDAY: The Pulse of Pepper Pike, 12:00-12:30 PM

Good afternoon and welcome to the fourth session of The Pulse of Pepper Pike. Today's topic for the live-chat is again budget alignment. In this chat, we'll continue to talk about the issue of aligning the City's needs with the City's revenues and resources, including an update on where the City is in proceeding with such a process. The time has been changed this week to 12noon and for just 30 minutes. I can tell from the statistics that many people are in fact reading these after they're complete (thank you!) but it appears that not many are able to join in live. We'll keep tinkering, but I hope you'll follow along either live or later. You can read the "what you should know" items below the chat frame.

A live-chat allows people to participate at whatever level they're comfortable - including not being able to attend but rather reading it back whenever it's convenient for them. If you have any questions or technical problems with the live-chat, let me know. Many businesses and other entities use Cover It Live now - including the Washington Post and the journalism organization, the Poynter Institute. I've used it for several years now and you can see examples on my other personal blog, Writes Like She Talks. Here's one of my favorites, blogged from the NPR studios on the night of the 2008 presidential election.

This live-chat is a public forum on the Internet, as is this blog. Some residents may not want to comment because of this public aspect, so I wanted to be clear upfront.

This forum is my own idea and I am solely responsible for its existence, which is to say, no one told me to do it and no one told me I can't do it - no one would tell me that though, I'm sure.

Wow - a comment came in at exactly the same time I hit "end live event"! It was from "George Jetson" and although I can't remember the exact words, he wrote something about how it was 12:30 and I was still talking, or talking to myself, or something along those lines.

Well George - since you were there reading or checking in, I guess I was not really talking to myself, now was I!? :)

Thanks for checking in and I hope you'll read it back and send on some comments for future live chats!

Please give my best to Jane, Elroy and daughter Judy. ;)
