Every year Council approves the project budget for both operating and capital projects. The approval usually comes late in the previous year. This allows administration to start projects earlier, rather than waiting for the entire budget to be approved in April. This year Council will review the project sheets and direct questions to administration prior to being a part of an agenda package. Both the questions and answers will be made public in the December 2, 2020 Council agenda package. Based on direction received at that meeting, administration will prepare the budget for approval at the December 9, 2020 Council meeting.
