DENVER -- Good morning! Here’s what you need to know today, Monday, April 2, 2018.

1. Denver Zoo admission may go up
The next time you go to the Denver Zoo, it may be slightly more expensive. Tonight, the Denver City Council is considering raising the cost of admission, increasing the cost to $20 during peak season and $15 the rest of the year. It would be the first increase in more than three years.

2. Groundbreaking on new affordable housing
Construction will start on a new affordable housing complex at North Dunkirk and East 59th Avenue in Green Valley Ranch. The 252-unit complex should be completed by summer 2019.

3. Update on mayor investigation?
We could get an update today on the Denver City Council's possible investigation into an allegation of sexual harassment against Mayor Michael Hancock. The council repeatedly put off an announcement last week, saying they needed more time. The council has another executive session planned for tonight.

4. Free pizza today!
When March Madness started, Little Caesars said that if a number 16 seed beat a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament, then they’d give away free pizza for lunch. They'll be offering everyone a free $5 lunch box today between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. local time.

5. Warm and windy to start the week
Today will be the warmest day of the week, but it will also be the windiest. You'll find mostly sunny skies this morning, with 30s and 40s to start. Denver will quickly warm into the low 70s by early afternoon. The winds will pick up through midday.
