Tuesday’s meeting marks the return of the work session — monthly meetings held as a way for Council to get reports from city staff either for informational purposes or in preparation for a vote later down the line.vote later down the line.
Council made the decision to hold work sessions at its February retreat, and has scheduled them for the third Tuesday of the month. The meetings will be held in Council chambers on the second floor of City Hall at 5 p.m. and are open to the public and will be televised, but work sessions do not include public hearings or comment, or votes by Council.
Regular meetings will still be held the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month.
On the agenda for Tuesday: A budget update, a review of Council’s legislative priorities, a report on Buncombe County’s push to stop euthanizing healthy animals by 2012, and an update on traffic calming in the city.
