Audit and Finance meeting postponed
Wednesday, March 4, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Another long work session Tuesday morning led to the first committee meeting of the new City Council to be postponed. Though the Audit and Finance Committee meeting was scheduled to take place at 2 p.m. Tuesday, the work session ran until 4:30 p.m., and Chair Kathie Tovo explained that committee members had other obligations. The committee was set to discuss Mayor Steve Adler’s staffing plans, which have been presented as something of an urgent matter. Though Tovo has indicated she is working to have another committee meeting the last week of March, she has also projected that discussion of the plans will require more than one meeting. No date has been set to reschedule Tuesday’s meeting. With Council facing several sticky topics, its work session ran longer than was typical under the former Council. It started later, too. Council members were scheduled to convene at 9 a.m. but did not do so until about 9:40, because they were getting their pictures taken.
