Missourian video (and article) of folks trying out #wheely bins (roll carts).  http://www.columbiamissourian.com/a/186513/columbia-residents-take-a-spin-with-roll-carts/
As the debate over whether to switch to an automated system of trash collection continues, the Missourian as part of its reporting on the issue asked three Columbians to try the carts and see how they work.

I'm proud to report the City of Columbia's 2014 audit is complete. Our innovation, "Incentive Based Budgeting"  produced General Fund savings for the second time: $4.2 Million saved in FY14. http://youtu.be/FhmwgHFggRE

What a great video!  Now, that drug "terminator" reminds me of the Ghostbusters "ghost trap," but I guess we're all safe.

This is the best app I've seen this year.
 
Be My Eyes
If you have a smart phone, you can provide sight assistance to the Blind. Chills all over.  You have to watch this. h/t +Emma Walker and +Mike Downes 
Be My Eyes is an iPhone app for that lets blind people contact a network of sighted volunteers for help with live video chat.

Someone this morning asked me what they received in exchange for their city taxes. Well, we made a list (there are 388 services highlighted here): http://www.gocolumbiamo.com/a-zservices.php?letter=a

Fantastic work by Randy Cole and Tim Teddy on our first net-zero house! http://www.columbiamissourian.com/a/185389/columbias-first-net-zero-house-generates-energy-and-interest/
Columbia's first "net-zero" energy-efficient house was open for public viewing this week. The house can generate enough energy annually to average zero utility costs.

This new water fountain has filled the equivalent of 1432 plastic bottles. Stop in City Hall to check it out!

Everyone is saying, "That was the best Diversity Celebration ever"! I especially liked the John "Blind" Boone program that starts at 16:25. https://www.gocolumbiamo.com/tcc/2015/01/21/2015-columbia-values-diversity-celebration/

One of our unrecognized stellar performers is our City's Television Station (esp. Jeff Rogers and Rosemary Frank). 17 Telly awards and counting!
