The Medford City Council will hold four meetings on Tuesday, two of which concern next year’s budget.
The Council will hold a Committee of the Whole meeting at 6:00PM with School Superintendent Roy Belson to review the proposed $47,483,000 school budget, which was unanimously approved by the School Committee on June 12. The meeting is taking place in Room 207 at Medford City Hall.
The Council will also have before them a request from Mayor Michael McGlynn to approve a proposed $92,127,534 municipal budget for fiscal year 2013, which begins July 1. The Council will have the budget before them during their regular meeting, which will take place at 7:00PM in the Council Chambers at City Hall. The total proposed budget is $139,610,534, compared to $133,285,781 for this past year.
In addition to considering the budget, the Council will hold two subcommittee meetings. At 5:15PM the Licensing Subcommittee will meet to discuss a potential food truck pilot program, and at 5:30PM the Public Safety Subcommittee will review a request for a study on a potential new police headquarters. Both meetings will take place in Room 207.
All meetings are open to the public. The regular meeting at 7:00PM will be broadcast live on Channel 22 (formerly Channel 16).
