Occupiers station themselves outside City Hall, Route 422 toll plans halted

    Good morning, Feeders! Occupy Philly participants are already outside City Hall as part of a larger, growing movement to call attention to the nation’s wealth disparity. Lizz Fiedler and Kim Paynter are there and will keep us posted with details.

    Dave Davies will also be in City Hall as City Council awaits word from Mayor Michael Nutter on the parking tax cut. Should we expect a veto, and if so, an override?

    Tom MacDonald will have details on Atlantic City Mayor Lorenzo Langford’s decision to keep city police officers from patrolling casino parking garages. Officers were assigned to the areas following violent car jackings, but Langford and the state continue to dispute the role of the city in the state-run tourism district.

    Kimberly Haas will have more information on the tolls that now aren’t coming to Route 422 in Pennsylvania. She’ll explain why and if that’s a plan drivers can count on. She’ll also have the latest on New Jersey’s medical marijuana facilities and where we can expect to find them nearby.

    Peter Crimmins will catch up with the folks at NJTV who’ve been formulating a coverage plan. Find out what you can expect from the network.

    Police today will inspect the car of a woman who drown last week in Schuylkill River. We’ll have continuing coverage on that story as authorities work to determine the cause of the fatal crash.
