Previous Calendar Notice for Wednesday/Tomorrow said the committee was taking up the Board of Aldermen’s budget. That has disappeared. Both meetings this week just list Board Bill 1 (budget) instead of which departments’ budgets will be heard.

The City Calendar also lists a Ways & Means Committee Citizens Input Meeting on City Budget for 6:30-7:30 pm Wednesday, May 17th, at St. Mary Magdalen School Hall, 4924 Bancroft
