Good morning, Jamaica Plain. Here’s your morning memo for Tuesday, April 22.

City Council Works on Cutting Red Tape for New Businesses: It’s a campaign promise from Mayor Marty Walsh and a talking point for just about any city politician you care to buttonhole: Making it easier for small businesses to get permits and licenses. Tuesday morning there’s a City Council “listening session” for business owners to air their grievances and propose improvements. It’s the second of five such planned sessions and takes place at 9 a.m. at Mass Bay Credit Union in South Boston. Here’s a list of the remaining sessions.

Jamaica Plain Residents’ Marathon Results: My old friends at Jamaica Plain Patch have put together a list of the top 20 finishers from the neighborhood. Also from Patch is a list of all the JP residents who were scheduled to run or roll. You can look up your neighbors’ finish times at the Boston Athletic Assoc. web site.

Squirrel Stole My Underpants: If you’ve got kids at home for school vacation week, one option for Tuesday is a free performance by Bonnie Duncan of the aforementioned saga. It’s at 11 a.m. at the JP Branch Library.

Have a great day!
