There will be both an Executive Session and a Budget Committee meeting on Tuesday, April 16, 2013, beginning at 6:00PM. Because of the Executive Session, the full Budget Committee will not meet until 7:00 PM.
An issue has come up that requires that the City Council meet immediately in Executive Session under ORS 192.660 (2) (h) “To consult with counsel concerning the legal rights and duties of a public body with regard to current litigation or litigation likely to be filed.”
Since the Budget meeting was noticed for 6:00 PM, there will be an opportunity at that time for members of the public, who cannot attend at the 7:00 PM time, to address the City Council on budget related issues before the Executive Session begins (at ~6:20 PM). Any comments will be shared with the full Budget Committee.
This is just the first meeting of the Budget Committee in which they will review the initial draft of the 2013-14 Budget. The second budget Committee meeting will take place on May 7, 2013 at 6:00 PM.
