COMMENTS

is no registration requirement to comment in person.


VOTING SESSION

1. Resolution Authorizing the City Manager to Execute a Memorandum of Agreement

with the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services for Mental

Health Crisis Counselors


I will vote in favor of this agreement. As a community that strives to advance the ethics of police practices, being sure that persons suffering from mental health challenges are better supported is a goal we are obliged to work towards. ARPA funding is giving us an opportunity to work on this goal, but we will need support from the County in order to secure future funding.


BUDGET WORK SESSION

2. Budget Reconciliation


This will be the first chance for council members to suggest adjustments, either additions or subtractions, from the City Manager's proposed budget. I will make some recommendations for reductions in Equipment Reserve spending and other projects. Some Ward 1 residents have already provided public testimony or contacted me about their concerns about the budget, I welcome more input.
