Response from the City Atty's office re: Beyond Baroque
Here's a note I just received in response to my support letter for Beyond Baroque

Thank you for your recent e-mail expressing your support for the City's extension of the lease of City property to Beyond Baroque. We applaud the wonderful work that this organization performs for our City residents, and wish to make clear that the City Attorney's Office is not in any way prohibiting the City from continuing its long-standing relationship with Beyond Baroque.

The City Council and Mayor are responsible for decisions to lease City property. The City Attorney's Office's role in these matters is solely to approve the form of the lease and to advise City officials regarding applicable laws. The City Attorney's Office does not set or control policy in leasing matters.

We understand that Council Member Rosendahl has recommended to the City Council that the City's lease with Beyond Baroque be extended.

If you have questions about the Council Member's motion or the Council process going forward, you may wish to speak with his office.

Again, thank you for taking the time to send your e-mail.

I'd heard there'd been a good response via e-mail, but that's been all the word I've heard so far. I hope to hear more this weekend.
