Council to meet Thursday, talk funding
Wednesday, May 27, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
City Council will hold a special called meeting this Thursday in order to dive into details of a “spending framework” for federal money, including $170 million in CARES Act funds. The conversation is a continuation of one that took place at Council’s last work session in response to a resolution asking the city to balance increased needs across most sectors with a number of competing priorities. (It’s complicated, and if you want an overview, read our story.) As Council is posted for discussion only – no vote – there is no speaker signup for the meeting, which will be held remotely at 1:30 p.m. Thursday and may be streamed online at that time.
