City Commission Budgetary Process – Fiscal Year 2020’21

As the City  Commission  beings  this  annual  process,  it  is customary  for  the City Commission 
 to first  hold “priority  setting workshops”  so that the Commissioners  may discuss, as a governing  board,  their priorities relating to community level  of service,  special projects, and future  capital outlay.



Public participation is encouraged. If you are addressing the Commission, step to the podium, state your name, and address for the record. Please limit your discussions to five (5) minutes.

(The full staff memo will be incorporated into the official record)
Minutes of the City Commissioner Workshop meetings can be obtained from the office of the City Clerk. The minutes are recorded, but are not transcribed verbatim. Persons requiring a verbatim transcript may make arrangements with the City Clerk to duplicate the recordings, or arrange to have a court reporter present at the meeting. The cost of duplication and/or court reporter will be at the expense of the requesting party.

Persons who wish to appeal any decision made by the City Commission with respect to any matter considered during this meeting will need a record of the proceedings, and for such purpose may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is based.
