Council Meeting Tonight

The municipal budget for SFY 2010 is expected to be introduced at tonight's City Council meeting.

The meeting is at 8 p.m. in Municipal Court, 325 Watchung Ave. Due to questions last week about the disposition of Dudley House, the council plans to hold an executive session before tonight's meeting.

Dudley House is a city-owned residence on Putnam Avenue where men in recovery from substance abuse live. Program costs, including city staff, come largely from outside funding sources, but City Council members have sought to turn the entire program over to an an outside agency.
