Full Council Budget Worksession May 16

On Monday, May 16, we will continue our discussions on department and program budget requests in regard to the FY12 operating budget. Among the budgets we will try to finalize on Monday are the Department of Libraries, the Department of Economic Development, the Department of Housing and Community Affairs and the proposed Office of Community Engagement (Office of Community Partnerships, Regional Services Centers, Commission for Women and Gilchrist Center).

The Government Operations and Fiscal Policy Committee will meet at 2:30 p.m. on Monday for a worksession to make recommendations regarding property taxes for FY12. The full Council will take this up on Wednesday.

Monday’s worksessions will move us closer to a tentative agreement on the FY12 budget, which is scheduled to be reached on Thursday, May 19. We are scheduled to formally adopt the budget on May 26. The adopted budget will go into effect on July 1.
