City Council will meet Tuesday, July 18, in a business session at 7 p.m., followed by a work session. Both sessions are open to the public.
The business session will be held in the Council Chambers on the fourth floor of the Municipal Building, which is located at 427 Patton St.
The work session will be held on the same floor, but across the hall in the Council Conference Room. In work sessions, Council reviews non-routine matters that will be voted upon in future business meetings.
During the business session, City Council is scheduled to receive an update from the Danville Area Humane Society. Council also will formally reschedule its first meeting in August in order to attend National Night Out events set for Tuesday, Aug. 1. City Council meets the first and third Tuesdays of each month, but will move its first meeting in August to Thursday, Aug. 3, to avoid the schedule conflict.
These two items are the only matters on the agenda for the business session.
During the work session, City Council will receive a presentation from City staff on possible implementation of a zero-based budgeting process. When using this budgeting process, a local government builds an annual budget from the ground up, starting from scratch. This means that every expenditure begins at zero and undergoes scrutiny every year to determine whether the purpose and amount of the expense is appropriate.
In addition to the presentation on zero-based budgeting, City Council will discuss the following matters:
River City TV, the city’s government access channel, will air the business session. Watch it live on cable (Comcast channel 10 and Gamewood channel 122) or streaming on the River City TV Facebook page.
River City TV does not air work sessions, but they are open to the public.
