OK, if anyone tells you that they know what's going to be going on for the G-20, they're lying. Viz:
City planners for the G-20 summit said today they want city residents, workers and businesses to start planning in earnest for the late September summit, but could not say exactly what to plan for...The Mayor's office, the County Executive's Office, and the Allegheny Conference are all being mum about everything, understandably. Still, in order to keep security at a max, only the "need-to-know" folks are being told about what's going to happen. I doubt that even many in the Mayor's Office are in that "need-to-know" group.
Details on exactly what streets will be closed in Downtown, Oakland and the North Side on Sept. 24 and 25 have not been released, nor has information for those living Downtown near the David L. Lawrence Convention Center....
The only thing that I think that we can assume*, however, is that City government will be pretty much shut down, with only essential personnel showing up:
During the week of the G-20, City Council will move both its Tuesday legislative meeting and its Wednesday standing committee meeting forward by one day, and City Council offices will be closed Sept. 23, 24 and 25 in anticipation of transportation difficulties.Obviously, City Council doesn't fit that "essential" criteria.
* This is a guess. I have no idea what's going on.
