Budget speaker registration opens today
Friday, August 7, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
After wrestling a bit with state requirements, City Council will now hold an in-person public hearing on Wednesday, Aug. 12, at the Palmer Events Center, though Council members themselves will be participating remotely. Public testimony can be given remotely over the telephone, or in person. For those who opt to show up to the meeting, face coverings and temperature checks will be mandatory. Speaker registration opens today at 5 p.m. or when the agenda is posted, whichever comes last, and will be open through Monday, Aug. 10. If public testimony warrants it or Council has not reached a decision by the end of the 12th, the meeting may be continued on Aug. 14. Speaker registration and the agenda can be found here, and more information about the meeting and its requirements can be found here.
