The City Council will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday to talk about potential concessions by unions that may help stave off layoffs.
Mayor Art Ward said most of the meeting will be held in secret, or executive, session, as the law allows.
On Thursday at 5:30 p.m., a joint meeting of the council and Board of Finance will approve a final municipal budget that is expected to freeze property taxes. It may include layoffs, Ward said, if the union talks don’t produce enough savings.
That won’t be known until as late as Thursday morning, city Comptroller Glenn Klocko said. He said he’s waiting to see what happens just like everyone else.
