An article from the Ithaca Voice concerning the problems brick & mortar food service has with the food truck vendors. Won't be an easy issue to resolve, and I know it happens in many other cities.

Here's a link to a youtube list of videos about Ithaca. Included are current videos of local interest, historic videos, and portions of silent movies which were filmed in Ithaca. It's worth a look.

Nice find Ex! A lot has been accomplished under his terms as mayor and I'd say he has done a pretty good job.
