Asheville City Council will have a full day on Tuesday, June 12, with two workshops planned before the group dives into its formal session agenda at 5 p.m.
First up: A budget workshop at 1 p.m., one of the final looks at the city’s 2007-08 fiscal budget, which goes into effect July 1. Following that discussion, the Council will spend an hour discussing steep-slope rules before it commences its 5 p.m. formal session.
On the agenda for the formal session, Council has numerous items to consider. Chief among them: A public hearing on the budget, as well as a hearing on UDO amendments relating to changes to parking, loading and access standards.
Other hot topics will include a discussion on the city’s flood-management policy, not to mention a proposed ordinance to conduct partisan elections for mayoral and Council seats.
The workshops and formal session will all be held in Council chambers on the second floor of City Hall. Those wishing to speak in the public hearings will need to sign up beforehand.
Those who cannot attend can watch the formal session live beginning at 5 p.m. on the Asheville Channel (Charter Cable channel 11).
