At yesterday's 11:00 am city council meeting, it was apparently decided to change the original proposal for an approximate 14%, 6%, and 2% rate increase over the next three years to an 8%, 8%, and then another 8% increase. See the original proposal by clicking here.
The city council met at 12:30 pm today for finalization of various budget ordinances and other business.
Just as an aside: Scheduling "public" meetings at 11:00 am, 12:30 pm, or other traditional work hours shows contempt for the public and is apparently designed to restrict public attendance and public comments. That is an issue to which the new council should give serious consideration. The question is, for whose convenience are meetings scheduled?
