Mayor McDonald stated that in accordance with the City Charter, there will only be a Public Hearing regarding the 2008 Budget and introduction of Local Law 5-I because there is not a quorum present for the meeting, therefore, no action will be taken, and a special meeting will be called sometime this week for the items on the agenda.

At 7:02 PM, a Public Hearing was conducted regarding the 2008 Budget. 

Mayor McDonald stated that the General Fund would have a proposed 4.9% increase in taxes, which amounts to about $.77 per thousand or an increase of $61.52 for a house assessed at $80,000.00.  The budget includes one new Code Enforcement Officer.  There is a proposed 4% increase in water and sewer rates.  The proposed budget for 2008 is $20,621,000.00.

Irene McMann, 252 Vliet Blvd., asked when the new Council Members would take over.  Mayor McDonald stated all new terms would begin January 1, 2008.  Irene also asked if all the new housing in the City was reflected in the new budget.  Mayor McDonald stated that anything on the tax rolls as of July 1 of this year is included in the budget.

At 7:09 PM, with no further public comment being made, Council President Kennedy made a motion to adjourn the public hearing, seconded by Council Member Primeau.  All members voted “AYE”.  The motion passed.

Council Member Grignon introduced Local Law 5-I for the year 2007 entitled:  A LOCAL LAW AMENDING CHAPTER 285 OF THE CODE BY CREATING ARTICLES XV AND XVI WITH RESPECT TO STORMWATER MANAGEMENT AND ILLICIT DISCHARGES

Mayor McDonald stated that a Public Hearing would take place in the future regarding this Local Law.
