Roundup: Town Hall meeting tonight; Budget hearing Thursday (correction)

Burning questions? Bring 'em on!
Catching up on a couple of items now that Plainfield's long holiday weekend is over --


Continuing its series of Town Hall meetings throughout the city, City Council gathers with residents citywide tonight at 7:00 PM at the Plainfield Senior Center, 400 East Front Street (mind where you park, not under the building in the rear!).

These Town Hall meetings are being conducted throughout the community as a matter of convenience for residents and are not intended to be for residents of the ward location only. Councilors will take questions and concerns from residents about any issue, so if there's an answer you need or a problem you see, come on out and share with the Council and your neighbors.


Owing to the nasty surprise delivered by the Robinson-Briggs administration last week that the its budget proposal is riddled with gaps, omissions and errors, the City Council has felt the need to set a special extra budget hearing meeting before wrestling with the question of amendments.

The special deliberation will take place Wednesday, May 30 Thursday, May 31 (date corrected), at 7:00 PM in City Hall Library. One of the features of the budget deliberations is that once the Council has interviewed officials or discussed an issue, the members of the Citizens Budget Advisory Commission are asked to weigh in with their observations and opinions.

Given the mess the Robinson-Briggs administration had made of things this year, you will want to hear the Council's thinking on how it is going to pull Robinson-Briggs' chestnuts out of the fire.

maybe they should discuss South Ave paving. Looks like they are not digging any futher down than last time they repaved. Only going down a couple of inches, thought they were going to rebuild base of road.
