Dr. Gallon's Letter on Rejected Budget
Dr. Gallon has promised to be available Monday at 7 p.m. to meet with the City Council to discuss what must happen next. Update: Council President Burney says it will happen May 11.
On the same night, the council will be holding a public hearing on amendments to the city's own FY 2009 budget and may adopt the amended budget. That meeting is 8 p.m. in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave., and will be followed by the previously scheduled meeting on Information Technology.
Update: 7 p.m. portion moved to May 11. As a Sunshine Law nut, I hope the 7 p.m. meeting will receive adequate notice and that people will realize the IT meeting is now moved from City Hall Library. None of the above, including the properly noticed special meeting and public hearing, is reflected on the city web site.
Please read Dr. Gallon's letter carefully and also the attached letter from the state Department of Education's Division of Finance. There has been some confusion about the budget rejection. Dr. Gallon also notes another issue that needed and received clarification from his office.
See you Monday!
