Making appointments to the 2018 Citizens Budget Advisory Committee is on the Council's to-do list at Monday's agenda-setting session.

The Committee meets throughout the budget season each, casting a sharp eye on proposed spending from a resident's viewpoint and making a series of recommendations to the Council before the budget's final passage.

Though the CBAC has no formal authority, their hard work is appreciated and their recommendations taken seriously.

This year's nominees are (the sponsoring Councilor's name is in parentheses) --

  • Sameerah Provitt (Toliver)
  • Elton Armady (Storch)
  • Cleveland Burton (McRae)
  • Monique Cook (Hockaday)
  • Geri Agurs (Goode)
  • Valerie Ellis (Mills-Ransome)
  • Siddeeq El-Amin (Williams)

In addition, proposed Ordinance 2018-06 would add some new 4-way stops at busy intersections --

  • Belvidere Avenue and Ravine Road
  • Grant Avenue and Sherman Avenue
  • West 8th Street and Spooner Avenue
  • West 8th Street and Hobert Avenue

City Council meets for its agend-setting session in the Courthouse/Council Chmbers, East 4th Street at Watchung Avenue. The meeting starts at 7:30 PM. Parking is available on the street and in the lot across from Police Headquarters
