 There may be general discussion(s) on current Finance, Governance & Ethics Committee issues. Randy Landes, Director of Finance, gave the committee an update on the budget process and timetable. He also told the committee that the Mayor had made the proposed budget available on the City's website for review. The problem that will occur is that the document is a live one and it will continue to be updated as the days go by. So information showing on the website will not necessarily be the same information that will be submitted to the full council in February. Councilwoman Marcason talked about the tentative meeting scheduled for neighborhood leaders prior to the budget hearings. Pursuant to the following subsections in 610.021 of the Revised Statues of Missouri, there may be a closed session to discuss: Legal matters, litigation or privileged communication with attorneys, pursuant to subsection 1; Real Estate, pursuant to subsection 2; Personnel, pursuant to subsection 3 & 13; Sealed bids or proposals, pursuant to subsection 12; Negotiations with employee groups, pursuant to subsection 9. The City Clerk`s Office now has equipment for the hearing impaired for use with every meeting. To check out the equipment please see the secretary for each committee. Be prepared to leave your Driver`s License or State issued Identification Card with the secretary and she will give you the equipment. Upon returning the equipment your license will be returned.
