Special Budget Meetings - Outcomes and Next Steps

City Council has been meeting regularly to discuss a funding gap that was identified for the upcoming 2024 and 2025 budget. This gap was identified as a part of our budgeting process and is not an indication of the final property tax impact for 2024 or 2025. Nor does this funding gap impact the 2023 budget.

This post summarizes the decisions made at the August 31 Special Budget Meeting and what to expect for next steps.
