Coming up at 5 p.m. Wednesday is a session on the GASB 45 issue related to the idea of taking some money from the city pension funds and using it for the new post-retirement benefits fund that would cover retired employees' health care. It's potentially an explosive issue.
Tomorrow's meeting in the council chambers is aimed at providing everyone who cares with the basic information they need to begin wrestling with the proposal.
On Thursday, Nov. 6, at 6 p.m., there will be a joint session of the West Bristol School Building Committee and the City Council, where councilors will likely rescind their approval for the Scalia site for a new school and endorse the purchase of a lot on Matthews Street instead.
That one, too, offers potential for fireworks. We'll see.*******
