Finance Committee Meetings Continue...
The FY2015 budget will continue being discussed on Monday and Tuesday at 6:30pm as the Board of Aldermen now enters the "cut" phase of their deliberations.
Thursday, May 19th, saw a packed Aldermanic Chambers as the threat of removing the Somerville Recreation Department by Aldermen from Wards 1, 4, 5 and 7. Some Aldermen have been reported as "changing their mind," but the Department is still rumored to be on the chopping block for next week's meetings.
Although most spoke on the Recreation piece on Thursday night, one woman commented on how informed she felt as a result of the tremendous work done by the City's Communications Department.
The City has until July 1st to submit a balanced budget to the State. A vote at the full Board of Aldermen meeting on June 26th is expected.
