New London mayor to present proposed 2020-21 budget — remotely
New London — Mayor Michael Passero on Wednesday will present his proposed fiscal year 2020-21 budget to the City Council.
He’ll make the presentation remotely by conference call and video conference, due to the ongoing national and state public health emergency caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Wednesday’s meeting and all other public meetings will be held virtually.
The general public may access audio of the meeting by calling 1 (408) 418-9388, access code 792 552 626. The meeting also can be accessed via video conference over a computer using the link posted on the home page of the city’s website, newlondonct.org, under news and announcements.
The only scheduled business during the meeting is the mayor's budget presentation and annual report on the city’s finances and general conditions of affairs, both of which will be posted on the city website prior to Wednesday’s meeting.
There will be no participation by the council or the public during the meeting. Future budget meetings and regular meetings of the City Council conducted remotely will permit participation by the general public.
