    Penn researchers crowdsource heart defibrillator locations, Food Truck Association has its first meeting

    Good morning, Feeders, and happy Monday!

    We’ll start things off today with a bill signing from Mayor Michael Nutter. Tom MacDonald will explain the details around the contractor benefits ordinance. Tom is also looking into fees and tolls proposed for the Scudder Falls Bridge and what’s in store for motorists.

    Lizz Fielder will look at a $14 million complaint filing in the Pennsbury School District, the district’s policy cap and the the state’s own policy. How do they all apply to the case of a teenage girl who lost her leg in a bus crash?

     

    What does a Food Truck Association do, where does it meet and who leads it? Peter Crimmins is hoping to answer all those questions and more ahead of the association’s first meeting tonight.

    Ever go defibrillator-spotting? Penn researchers are giving away money to those who help spot heart defibrillators. The information, as Taunya English will explain, will be used to create an app.

    We’ve got those stories and more for you today, plus a feature on NewsWorks Tonight: a Kensington elementary school is in danger of closing, but it’s running quite well. NewsWorks/Notebook reporter Ben Herold will have the details.
