File it under.. "political humor" (which I don't have a lot of experience with):
ITEM 08-1192: CD9 G MOTION(Perry/Hahn) Relative to declaring the Celebration of Freedom on July 4, 2008 a special event, (fees and costs absorbed by the City= $1,226).
Granted it's just one of many serious things the City must do to make it all official and whatnot. I dunno.. fill in your own punchline. Mine was "wow! I thought the celebration of freedom already is a special event! (for those that have it)"
Yeah, I know, needs work.. NEXT!
