In addition to deciding the "Y" lot issue, Ann Arbor City Council and the Ann Arbor Library Board will continue budget discussions.  Absentee Ballots are available for the May 8th elections, and the annual Commuter Challenge is about to get underway!  Join WEMU's David Fair and Mary Morgan of the CivCity Initiative to find out all about these topics and more in this week's "Civic Matters."

Over 75-thousand miles of alternative commuting have already been logged by more than 200 teams participating in the Commuter Challenge.  


Ann Arbor's Commuter Challenge is underway, encouraging  the use of alternative transportation methods to get to work in Ann Arbor.  Hear more from WEMU's Andrew Cluley.
