Blink and it's over, that's how fast the August 4th meeting of the Murfreesboro City Council was, and Mayor Bragg started the session off by wishing his mother a happy birthday.  Council considered the recommendations of the Transportation Director to build transit passenger waiting shelters for the Rover system, to shield anyone waiting for a ride from inclement weather and scorching sun.  No sooner is this year's event over then the Main Street & JazzFest Committee request to hang a banner across East Main Street from April 27-May 7, 2012 to announce the 16th Annual JazzFest event for 2012.  The rezoning along Memorial Boulevard at King's Ridge Drive that councilwomen Scales-Harris so passionately argued against at last week's meeting was quietly voted through upon third and final reading, though she remained opposed, as was similar rezoning along South Rutherford Boulevard.  Finally, the Assistant City Manager recommended the installation of fire hydrants for newly annexed areas of Manson Pike/Brinkley Road, and the council is due for a facelift; City Manager Lyons discussed remodeling to be done to the city council chamber.
