Common Council Special Meeting – October 21, 2020

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that pursuant to Section 2.04 of the City Charter, the Common Council of the City of Poughkeepsie will hold a Special Meeting on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 6:30 p.m., and will be held via videoconferencing, (as permitted by the NYS Open Meetings Law).


As we enter the coming months, the Common Council will be required to adopt a balanced budget for the City of Poughkeepsie and make approvals for the five year Capital Plan. In order to accomplish both of these aims, we will hold a series of special meetings and hearings. 

Common Council Chairperson Salem calls a Special Meeting for the Common Council to receive a presentation on the Mayor’s proposed 2021-2025 Capital Plan for Wednesday, October 21 at 6:30 pm. The Common Council has sixty days from September 16, 2020, to review, modify, and adopt the 2021-2025 capital plan.

The Capital Improvement Plan defines projects and initiatives for the five-year period of 2021-2025 and acts as a blueprint for planning our city’s capital expenditures. We’re looking forward to hearing more about the draft that was sent to us last week at our special meeting, date, and registration information will be posted soon.
