The City Council will hold a special meeting at 6 p.m. Nov. 23 in the Council Chambers, 13020 Newcastle Way, to continue making amendments to the 2011 preliminary budget and decide whether to increase property taxes next year.

The council began making amendments to the budget and held its final public hearing on the matter at its Nov. 16 meeting.

At the Nov. 16 meeting, the council voted to add $62,000 for parks maintenance next year, reduce funding for A Regional Coalition for Housing to $10,000 from $26,000, eliminate the $166,000 skate park project scheduled to be funded in 2012 and change city staff merit raises into noncompounding bonuses.
