City to unveil 2015 preliminary budget at Oct. 21 meeting

NEW — 4:30 p.m. Oct. 20, 2014

Newcastle Finance Director Christine Olson will present the 2015 preliminary budget at the City Council’s Tuesday meeting, according to the Oct. 21 agenda.

It also represents the first of three public hearings, giving residents a chance to comment on the document. According to a preliminary budget calendar, the council will also hold public hearings on Nov. 4 and 18.

The budget is slated for adoption Dec. 2, though dates are subject to change.

Mayor Steve Buri is also expected to make an appointment to the Community Activities Commission. The city is still seeking applications for a spot on the advisory board, since more than one seat was vacant. Learn more here.

The Tuesday City Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 12385 Newcastle Way, Suite 200. View the full agenda here.
