The City Council’s Finance Committee is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Monday to vote on the budget. The committee’s vote is considered a recommendation to the City Council, which has the final decision on the spending plan. Aldermen will meet on Monday, April 17 and are expected to vote on the budget that night.
