The Huber Heights City Council meets 26 November 2012. There are about 50 items on the agenda so it will be a full night. Below I identify a few of the items I think most citizens should watch in order to make sure council conducts educational discussions about how decisions are made. I recommend you also look over the rest of the agenda items to see if any of them deal with things that you…
This week it looks like the Public Works Committee is as interesting as the Administration Committee. Although without the pre-read that is sometimes attached on the city website it is hard to tell what will be discussed.
Has scheduled a
meeting (on or about 4:30pm) to discuss:
Last night, Dec 4th, city council members received a presentation on another exciting project for the city. However, this presentation was done in executive session.

I received a call from the Board of Elections yesterday. The correct date for filing petitions to run for Mayor or City Council is Feb 6, 2013. I do not know why the date was moved 15 days earlier than the first date that was put out but I heard it may have been a calculation error by one of their employees (as opposed to the state moving the date).
Update: The council meeting was not useful in understanding the $600,000 loan from the Fire Capital Fund to the Fire Operating Fund. It was also not useful in understanding the accounting change. However, I broke down and made personal inquiries. As always the city staff and the council members were helpful and the one on one information was informative. But what good is it if only one person outside council knows "the reason" while the rest of the community has to guess?
I realized the other day that there have been no committee discussions about possibly raising the income tax. The DDN tells us council was thinking about it. Council would have to vote at a council meeting to do this and it would have to be done prior to Feb 6th if they wanted it to appear on the May ballot. The only regularly scheduled council meeting before Feb 6th is on Jan 28th.
