Today is shaping up to be one of the busiest days at City Hall in a long while.
At 5:30 p.m., a joint session of the City Council and Board of Finance will consider whether to give its blessing to a proposed $171.5 million budget that raises property taxes more than 5 percent.
An hour later, at 6:30 p.m., the Bristol Downtown Development Corp. will meet to review a deal worked out in closed-door negotiations with a Long Island-based developer, Renaissance Downtowns, that may set the direction for downtown’s revitalization.
The budget meeting will be carried out entirely in public.
The BDDC will likely meet in executive session to go over the terms. But it they proved acceptable to commissioners, a vote for the agreement would be in public.*******
