This week in Council Chamber: November 22-26, 2021

The Council finishes up its budget work on Monday.

Monday morning’s weekly Council Briefing has no special presentations or executive sessions scheduled.

Monday morning immediately following the Council Briefing, the Budget Committee meets for the last time to put the finishing touches on the 2022 budget and vote it out of committee.

Monday afternoon’s full City Council meeting will mostly be concerned with final approval of the 2022 budget, but it will also vote on an extension to the city’s lease agreement with the U.S. Army for the Ft. Lawton property while the redevelopment plan remains under review.

After the City Council meeting, the Parks District Board will meet to approve the Parks District’s 2022 budget.
