Farewell to Councilmember Nancy Hart; draft budget presented in the afternoon

We said goodbye to Councilmember Hart last night- I think everyone has favorite memories of time spent with former Councilmember Hart- I know I do. Nancy represented her ward and the city so well over the years, and I personally will miss her smile, candor, and wit.  We also welcomed newly elected Councilmember Jim Perry, as well as swearing in returning Councilmembers Andy Melendrez and Paul Davis.

In the afternoon session, the Council approved the draft budget for next fiscal year, which will be presented for adoption next Tuesday evening.  The coming fiscal year budget is balanced without a proposed use of reserves, and although there are remaining challenges within the budget (such as finding the money for the settlement pay-back), I believe it is another solid budget document.  My thanks to everyone on staff who worked so hard to pull this together.
