Now it is up to all of us to either go to or watch the council meetings. Call the council members and ask them what their plans are for reducing our budget. We should be asking council when they are going to start discussions on reducing the budget. Are these discussions going to be held at a regular council meeting, study sessions or are they going to be held separate? How are they going to be advertized to let those that are interested know about them? Weighing in on the process is in our own best interest. I’m sure that every council member at this point has some idea of what they are going to be doing to reduce the budget. I know from talking with several council members over the last couple of years they do want to hear from residents. Now more than ever they want more residents to come to council meetings and participate in letting them know what we want for. November 22 is the next council meeting.
