Regarding Day One, the Legislative Relations session might be of interest. Did you know that the City has its own lobbyist? The City’s lobbyist is Mr. Phillip Isley, former City Councilor.

Regarding Day Two, the Citizen Survey Results might be also be of interest. Did you complete the survey? We on Council have not been provided a copy of the survey results. If you happen to have completed the survey, I’d be interested in hearing your opinion.

Regarding Day Three, the budget will be of obvious interest. So far, Council has received no information regarding the pay study. Whether this update addresses the pay study and what we need to do to address deficiencies in pay remains to be seen.
