City Council Meets at Noon

Five things to know on Wed, Jan. 11.

1. Today will be sunny with a high near 37, but we may wake up with a dusting of snow on the ground on Thursday. We could get some of the white stuff before 4 a.m., but chances are it won't accumulate.

2. Former Mass. governor Mitt Romney was the clear winner of the N.H. primary, with a sweeping 38 percent of the vote. Ron Paul tailed him with 24 percent, and Jon Huntsman took third with 17 percent. Click here to see how Boston Patch readers voted in our poll.

3. The Boston City Council holds its regular meeting at noon on the 5th floor of City Hall. Agenda highlights include:

  • Accepting a $60,000 grant for Boston Center for Youth and Families to provide nutritional meals to children.
  • An elevator at 360 Newbury that has been deemed unsafe by the Department of Public Safety
  • An order for a hearing about installing speed bumps on certain public and private streets.
  • An ordinance for GPS technology in all city emergency vehicles.

4. January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. Every year, approximately 13,000 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and about 4,000 American women die of the disease. But luckily, it’s one of the most preventable cancers out there so visit your health center for a routine screening and HPV vaccine. 

5. Here's a few deals we just happen to have lying around: $10 off $40 at Bath & Body Works, $3.50 off $10 at ULTA and $10 off $50 at Aéropostale. Print out the coupons and shop away.
