Budget Night: A Rousing Success
Scott Neal, December 21, 2011 | Scott Neal
Rousing success might be a little too ethusiastic, but I think I can say that it went pretty well. In my blog yesterday, I predicted that we’d get to budget around 9 pm and wrap up the meeting around 10 pm. By golly, that wasn’t to far from the actual time frame. We started consideration of the budegt around 8:15 pm and wrapped up the meeting at 10:10 pm. Not bad.
The Council approved the budget as proposed. I gave a short summary of the budget contents in yesterday’s post, so I won’t get into that again today. Suffice it to say, a post describing the contents of the budget in detail would be unreadable in length. It might not be all that interesting either.
We will put final touches on the approved 2012 budget during the last few days of 2011 as we get ready for the year ahead. This is normally a time when workloads wind down a bit, but we’ve got a lot going on right now, so it’s back at it. Edina is no place for slackers.
