I've gotten hold of an e-mail from City Council President Doug Shields to all council members and to the Mayor's Office. Shields is postponing Mayor Ravenstahl's compelled appearance before Council in order to accommodate the Penguins victory parade.
The Mayor is being told "Council expects the Mayor to attend (the) Wednesday standing committee to respond to questions pertaining to the amended Act 47 year plan".

I was informed that the Mayor has scheduled a VICTORY parade for the Penguins Stanley Cup champions.
Go Pens! What a great team effort and most exciting series for the NHL fans everywhere. And the Pittsburgh Penguins are bringing the cup home in style. A great day for hockey indeed.
Therefore, the Act 47 post agenda scheduled for Monday is cancelled.
I ask the City Clerk's office to please convey a letter to the Mayor so that he is informed that the Council has passed a motion to compel the Mayor to appear before the governing body.
The Council expects the Mayor to attend Wed. Standing committee to respond to questions pertaining to the amended Act 47 year plan.
Thank you all for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.
President, City Council
