Below are notices for two important meetings that will be held this week.
The first is the public hearing on next year’s budget on Tuesday.
The second is a forum to be sponsored by the Friends of Good Harbor on Thursday discussing the group’s findings on the health of the marsh system and its plans to help save the marsh and improve conditions around the beach and its ecosystem.
Both are important to us as citizens of Gloucester and are open to the public.
Hearing on City Budget
The City Council will hold a hearing on the city budget for Fiscal Year 2014, which begins in July, on Tuesday, June 11, at 7 p.m. in the Kyrouz Auditorium at City Hall. This is your chance as citizens to make your feelings known to the Council and the City Administration about how you think the city’s limited funds should be spent. If you cannot make the hearing, you can watch in on Cable (Ch. 12) or you may email the mayor or any member of the Council with your thoughts or suggestions. The decisions we make in the next couple of weeks will have an impact on all our lives, please take the time to familiarize yourself with the spending plan and to weigh in on it.
