ANN ARBOR CITY COUNCIL
Council suspends art fund

Faculty want more
input in decisions
regarding athletics
By AUSTEN HUFFORD
Daily StaffReporter
For some faculty members,
the announcement of Michi-
gan's matchup against the
University of South Carolina
in the Outback Bowl has been
overshadowed by the operating
practices of the University Ath-
letic Department.
Faculty members at Mon-
day's meeting of the Universi-
ty's Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs said there
was a lack of faculty input con-
cerning important decisions
made by the Athletic Depart-
ment, claiming faculty members
were not consulted about the
recent decision to expand the
Big Ten Conference.
Faculty members on the
Advisory Board on Intercolle-
giate Athletics lamented over
the relationship between the
Athletic Department and fac-
ulty members at the meeting.
The ABIA - whose members
are appointed by University
President Mary Sue Coleman

and approved by the Universi-
ty's Board of Regents - includes
facultymembers,alumni, Mich-
igan athletes, an executive offi-
cer and Athletic Director Dave
Brandon. Committee members
meet regularly to discuss sub-
stantive athletic department
matters.
According to its bylaws, the
committee serves an advisory
role to the athletic director
who "will seek and consider the
advice of the Advisory Board on
all major financial and policy
decisions with respect to the
program on intercollegiate ath-
letics."
Professors at the meet-
ing alleged that the Athletic
Department did not consult
the ABIA on the addition of the
Maryland and Rutgers to the
Big TenConference.
"I happen to think that the
implications of expanding the
conference ...aresignificantaca-
demic matters, and I was per-
sonally very disappointed when
I heard it on the radio," Political
Science Prof. Edie Goldenberg,
an ABIA member, said.
A primary concern among
professors in attendance was
that the Athletic Department
did not consider the well-being

In 9-1 vote, Council
disbands program
until April
By GIACOMO BOLOGNA
Daily StaffReporter
Though Ann Arbor voters
decided against supporting a
millage to fund public art in the
city in the election last month,
the Ann Arbor City Council

passed a resolution on Monday
that would also temporarily dis-
band the current Percent for Art
program.
The Council voted 9-1 to sus-
pend the plan, which devotes 1
percent of capital project allo-
cations to fund public art, until
April, opting to seek out a new
option for funding public art in
the interim. Because the newly
passed ordinance suspends the
Percent for Art program until
the spring, it is not expected to

have a significant effect on the
funding of public art in the near
future since the program draws
funds from capital projects that
are typically non-existent during
the winter.
During discussion on public
art funding, Councilmember
Jane Lumm (I-Ward 2) said she
supported the suspension from
the previous Council meeting,
claiming that the Council has
more pressing issues to tackle
than public art.

But, later in the discussion,
Mayor John Hieftje emphasized
that expenditures for programs
like the police and fire depart-
ments come from the city's gen-
eral fund, while funding for
public art rarely does, meaning
funding public art doesn't equate
to a loss of funding for city ser-
vices.
Newly elected City Coun-
cilmember Chuck Warpehoski
(D-Ward 5) spoke about his

LOCAL BUSINESSES
Tim Hortons
to open Thurs.
in Landmark

Shop to offer coffee,
breakfast and lunch
on South U.
By KAITLYN BYRNE
For the Daily
Students with a hankering
for Tim Hortons coffee will
soon have another place to sati-
ate their craving beyond the Big
House concession stands.
According to Tini Hortons
officials, the coffee chain will
open its doors to a new shop on
Thursday in the first level of
the Landmark luxury apart-
ment complex on South Univer-
sity Avenue, offering a full menu
complete with coffee, breakfast
and lunch items.
Joel Brown - the director of
asset management at American
Campus Communities, which
owns Landmark - wrote in an
e-mail that the build-out for the
Tim Hortons's location is still in
progress and it will be positioned

inside the Landmark building,
opening directly onto South Uni-
versity.
With the 7-Eleven in the build-
ing opening last weekend, Tim
Hortons will be the next in a
series of businesses in the Land-
mark building, including No
Thai? and World of Beer, both of
which are expected to open this
spring, according to Brown.
Students living in Landmark
have expressed mixed feelings
about the opening.
LSA sophomore Tony Barron,
a resident of Landmark, spoke
positively of the store.
"I'm extremely excited
because it's going to be a lot more
convenient to grab coffee on
the way to class," Barron said.
"When I'm hungry, food is right
in my building, so it's awesome."
Barron mentioned that he
typically purchases coffee at the
nearby Espresso Royale on South
University, but will definitely be
switching to Tim Hortons after
the opening.

In his opening speech on
the state of hydraulic fractur-
ing in Michigan, Public Policy
Prof. Barry Rabe said if he
were delivering an address on
the matter five years ago, the
premise would be quite dif-
ferent.
As fracking has prolifer-
ated across the state, public
opinion has played an increas-
ing role in the future of the
practice. Students, faculty and
Ann Arbor residents packed
into Weill Hall's Annenberg
Auditorium on Monday morn-
ing to listen to discussion
from Rabe and other panelists
on public sentiment regarding
