Lynnwood City Council to discuss budget process at Monday’s meeting

great dealThe Lynnwood City Council is scheduled to discuss some changes to the budget process proposed by new Finance Director Sonja Springer at Monday’s meeting.

Springer is recommending changes to the dates related to the preliminary budget, hearings and work sessions, and consideration of the budget by the Council, which would allow for the Biennial Budget to be adopted on or before the fourth Monday in November.

The Council also is scheduled to receive a briefing on proposed changes to Lynnwood’s Boards and Commissions. The City is proposing that the Historical Commission merge with the Heritage Park Partners Advisory Committee (HPPAC).

The proposal calls for four of the seven positions to be ‘at-large’ positions. These board members would be appointed through the standard city appointment process and serve for 3-year terms. The three other positions would be ‘ex-officio members’ and serve one  year terms and be selected from the following qualifying bodies: Alderwood Manor Heritage Association, Sno-Isle Genealogical Society, Heritage Park Docent, Snohomish County Tourism Bureau.

Representatives from the State Auditor’s office will be briefing the Council on its 2014 Audit process. They will identify the areas they will focus on.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the Lynnwood Civic Center, Council Chambers, 19100 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood.
