Volunteering

Volunteerism. It would be great to see more community oriented and sponsored volunteerism. Could allow for people and city wanting to get work with the city, to check each other out.

City could help offset volunteers transportation costs by providing season pool passes at city hourly wage commitment or wage equivalent in deduction ...more »

Swimmin

Interactive map of pools and hours.

 

Interactive to allow for pool to get a possible "head count" and to allow kids to track the pools they visit over the summer.

Energy

I would like to see a "vanishing deductible" applied to city utility services. The longer you pay into the services as a resident of Austin the less your energy rate would be.

This could be offset by setting example for nation and allow persons to transfer their "credit ...more »

Free Cake Day

There should be a free cake day every second Friday of the month. Too many bakers waste product that isn't consumed at the end of the day. Why not give it away to folks who live in Austin?

Can the LEADERS of OA share HOW this could possibly work for development beyond idea generation?

The Open Austin plan. First off it’s not a plan. It’s a creative use of an idea generation and capture platform called IdeaScale. What Mr. Hurley and company did was launch a “campaign” to Open Source the City’s website really without a PLAN or any INFRASTRUCTURE to make that potential plan a reality.
