cap vs op

The Common Council will meet this week in hybrid format for 2023 Capital and Operating Budget deliberations. The Council is scheduled to meet on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Both Wednesday and Thursday will only happen if necessary. The Council will only take public comment on Tuesday.

A meeting on Wednesday will only occur if the Council is unable to finish their deliberations on Tuesday. A meeting on Thursday will only occur if the Council is unable to finish their deliberations on Wednesday. If it is necessary to have a Thursday meeting, the meeting will be either in person only (Madison Municipal Building Room 215) or virtual depending on a vote of the Council on 11/15.

Members of the Common Council have proposed Capital Budget amendments and Operating Budget amendments that are available for your review. These files are also attached to the Legistar files for each budget (Capital Budget: Legistar File 73264 | Operating Budget: Legistar File 73845).

You can read my long blog post with background detail on the budget.

To see the full list of City meetings scheduled for the week, please consult the City meeting schedule.
