Marc Basnight to address City Council, resident concerns tonight

A reminder that N.C. state Senate leader Marc Basnight will be in town today for a town-hall meeting starting at 4 p.m. on the second floor committee room of City Hall downtown. He'll be joined by Durham state Sen. Floyd McKissick, Jr., and will have a chance to hear Durham's legislative priorities and concerns for the upcoming legislative year.

The meeting is open to the public, and should be a good opportunity to hear the City Council's thoughts and ideas for Basnight, one of the most powerful pols in the state government. Ray Gronberg's got a very good run-down of the topics you can expect to hear raised at tonight's meeting in his H-S article today.

According to Gronberg's reporting, the City Council's priorities will likely include increased funding for local courts, support for ongoing water cooperation with the state, tougher penalties for gang activity, and state funds to support Minor League Baseball's plans for the old Durham Athletic Park.
