Clerk-Treasurer Jeff Houston told the council members this week that the date was modified from its original calendar date due to an error in the publication. Houston said he notified the Department of Local Government Finance and they are aware of the change and approved it. The budget needed to be re-advertised for two weeks which has caused the delay in the public hearing.
The only problem that the council members saw with the date was that the hearing was during the IACT (Indiana Association of Cities and Towns) conference. Most of the members will be at that conference which brought up the need for a quorum for that public hearing. The issue will be worked out and there will be enough members to hold that meeting on Sept. 9.
