  3. Proposed FY16 Budget: The council will hear a presentation on the city’s proposed FY16 budget. A series of budget workshops are scheduled for Aug. 17-20. As part of the consent agenda, council will consider Sept. 10 for a public hearing on the budget. A hearing on the proposed tax rate will be Sept. 2.
  4. Graham Road Rehabilitation: The council will consider an $860,000 contract to rehabilitate Graham Road from Dove Crossing Lane to the Lick Creek crossing.
