This week in Council Chambers

The Council’s budget deliberations finally get down to concrete proposals this week.


Monday morning’s Council Briefing will include presentations on two pieces of legislation that transfer city property to non-profit organizations serving the BIPOC community:

  • the Central Area Senior Center to the organization that has operated it for years;
  • a 99-year lease, in anticipation of a title transfer in a few years, of the former Fire Station 6 to Africatown Community Land Trust.

Monday afternoon’s full City Council meeting has one item on the agenda: a 2020 budget amendment representing a compromise deal on funding and operating a replacement for the Navigation Team for the remainder of the year.

This week’s Introduction and Referral Calendar includes 33 appointments and reappointments to the Design Review Board and the Construction Codes Advisory Board.

Tuesday evening at 5:30pm the Budget Committee will hold its second public hearing on the 2021 city budget.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the Budget Committee will meet to review and discuss (but not vote on) specific proposals to amend Mayor Durkan’s proposed 2021 budget. The specific schedule of topics has not yet been released.
