The Medford City Council, still on its summer meeting schedule, will hold a Committee of the Whole and a regular meeting on Tuesday, September 18.
The Council will receive updates on two big projects during the Committee of the Whole meeting, a plan to either renovate or replace the police station and a proposal for new science labs at Medford High School that will be partially funded by the state. Mayor Michael McGlynn and his top aides have been asked to attend the meeting along with Police Chief Leo Sacco and School Superintendent Roy Belson.
The Council is expected to vote on the science lab project during its regular meeting. The School Committee previously approved two different options with about a sixty percent reimbursement rate from the state, and Council approval is needed to move the project forward.
Several items will be before the Council during its regular meeting. There will be a public hearing on Asian restaurant Blue Fuji’s request to stay open until 1AM. Councilor Breanna Lungo-Koehn is seeking an update on the city’s sidewalk improvement efforts, a $500,000 project that was initiated six months ago. The full agenda is available on the city website.
The next Council meeting will be September 25 following Tuesday’s meeting.
