City Council looks at redistricting options, landmarks prepare for 9/11 anniversary

    Good morning, Feeders! We’ll have plenty of 9/11 coverage as the anniversary approaches Sunday, including how local sites are preparing for the day.

    Peter Crimmins will reach out to parks and attractions to see if and what kind of heightened security measures are in place for the 9/11 anniversary. He’ll also look at some annual unrelated events that will take place this weekend.

    Tom MacDonald will have the latest details on Philadelphia’s councilmanic map redistricting. Two proposals on the table are up for discussion next week. Find out how they’d affect your ward and council district.

    The recent floods haven’t been great for aquatic life, the antifreeze tank that got sucked into a Bucks County sinkhole can’t be helping the matter. Carolyn Beeler will check in on that story, how the clean-up efforts are going and what impacts can be expected.
