More Potential Budget Cuts on Table for Council
The Burlington City Council holds one of it’s every-other-week work session today and the “discussion” portion of the agenda is a LONG one, led by the city’s budget options if the franchise fee referendum in August fails.Also to be discussed are a combined police and sheriffs department building, the consequences of the spring flooding, the nearby presence of the emerald ash borer, and a request by resident Frank Stadler to issue a “no fly zone” for drones above the city.
Today’s meeting will be held in the council’s chambers on the third floor of city hall beginning at 4:30. The public is welcome to attend.
Another meeting tonight is the Burlington School Board. They will meet at 6 o’clock to hear about a technology program. At 7 o’clock, the board will meet in regular session and is expected to hire a communications and assessment coordinator for the district, Derek Baker. Baker was most recently the internet sales manager for the Deery Brothers car dealership in West Burlington. The board will also consider firing a teacher.
