Our newly elected council will be diving in head first come December. Next month our elected officials will be having two orientations regarding their new job and then budgets. They’ll need to put their skills to use quickly as they sit for their inaugural meeting on December 4th and begin looking at the Capital Budget the following week. On December 11th there will be a Council in Committee meeting followed by two days of Capital Budget talks. Then, depending on the outcome from their budget orientation meeting in November, they will either tackle the Operating budget the following week from December 19th to the 21st of wait until January 23rd to the 25th.
