Item 17 - council meeting schedule

Postby Alison Alter » Mon Nov 06, 2017 12:52 pm

Dear colleagues,

In reviewing item 17, our proposed meeting calendar, I wanted to suggest that we consider holding one or both of our budget hearing sessions separate from our regularly scheduled council meetings in August. It was unfortunate this year that we did not get to hear from the public regarding their budget concerns until late into the night. I think we could avoid that in the future by setting aside one or more dates to focus solely on budget related hearing items. We could convene at 6 PM and that would allow a focused hearing on budget related items to take place with more time certainty.

I am not sure we are ready this week to do so yet, but I also wanted to flag that I think it would be useful to designate some dates for CodeNEXT work sessions or readings.
