Sturgeon Bay residents Tuesday will have the chance to comment on the city's proposed budget for 2013. A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 421 Michigan Street.
One change is that the Safe Routes to School project is now slated to be completed in 2013 instead of 2012. The state still has not given the city approval to proceed with bidding and sidewalk construction; they want the city to complete an architectural/historical survey of the affected area first.
A piece of information city officials have now that they didn't have at the October 23 Council meeting is figures needed to calculate amounts of tax increments and transfers for the city's tax increment districts (TIDs).
Following the hearing aldermen will vote on formally adopting the budget and the tax levy.
The Council's regular meeting will follow. Some of the agenda items include:
-Voting on the Finance/Purchasing & Building Committee's recommendation to award the port security surveillance system contract to BAYCOM, Inc.
-Electing another Council representative to serve on the Sturgeon Bay Utility Commission.
-And acting on a request by the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Board to obtain permission to apply with the League of American Bicyclists to become a bike friendly community.
