Preview: Budget, Fire Plan on Tonight's Agenda
Return to Canton-Sixes Patch at 6 p.m. to watch tonight's meeting live.
The Canton City Council will meet at 6 p.m. tonight at City Hall.
Among the items on the agenda:
- Fiscal Year 2013 Budget. The council will have the second reading, discussion and possible action of the Fiscal Year 2013 budget. The proposed budget is $31 million, which is $2.2 million less than Fiscal Year 2012. Open the second PDF under the photo for the proposed budget.
- Five-Year Fire Plan. Last Wednesday, the council met "to begin the development of a 5-10 year fire services plan." That was one of the requests from seniors who pleaded with the Canton City Council to postpone a vote to override the mayor's veto of a controversial fire district ordinance that critics fear will erase a decade of voter-approved senior tax exemptions. The council proceeded with the vote. Tonight, the council will have the first reading of that ordinance and continue discussions of its long-term fire needs.
