Next Tuesday Is Going To Be Hectic!
Y'all better enjoy your holiday weekend because Tuesday is going to be one hectic day! Although the Finance Advisory Committee meeting, originally scheduled for 3:30 at City Hall, has been canceled, it's still going to be a very busy afternoon/evening on that first day back.
BUDGET STUDY SESSION AT 4:30
At 4:30 in City Council Chambers the City Council will hold a Budget Study Session and this one will be worth the price of admission. Director of Finance and Information Technology Bobby Young presented the Preliminary Budget to the council last week. You can read all 290 pages HERE. That document, prepared with all the priorities given to Young earlier, carried a $12 million deficit, so it's going to be interesting to see what kind of discussions will take place Tuesday as the council tries to deal with that very significant shortfall. In years past this kind of study session might drag on for a couple hours, but there is a Planning Commission meeting scheduled to begin at 6:00 that kind of slams that door.
PLANNING COMMISSION AT 6:00
Speaking of which, you can read the agenda for that Planning Commission meeting HERE. This one is going to be action-packed, too. Among the issues the commission will consider are:
- The establishment of a 4th "Neighborhood Improvement Program", HERE.
- An assessment of the new Capital Improvement Programs for the next fiscal year and out to 2020, HERE.
- The consideration of the new Public Nuisance Ordinance, that will then be forwarded to the City Council for adoption, HERE.
- And the Housing Element of the General Plan that has a tight time schedule, HERE.
MORE, INCLUDING A "MEET THE MAYOR"?
There are a few other meetings next week but there is no confirming agenda available yet. And, theoretically, there will be another in the series of "Meet The Mayor" gatherings at some site as yet not announced on Thursday.
FISH FRY STARTS FRIDAY
Then, beginning Friday, we have the 66th Annual Costa Mesa/Newport Harbor Lions Club Fish Fry, which continues through the weekend and, for the first time, includes the Costa Mesa Community Run on Sunday, June 2nd. Whew!
