City Council Update, June 3, 2024

On Monday, Council decided there won't be a millage request this year, reviewed the recent budget report, and discussed voting changes.

Council discussed whether or not the city should attempt another request for a millage restoration this November. They decided against it. Among the reasons include that we wish to improve our budget and financial reporting processes, we have not started any education about a new request yet, and the uncertainty that exists without a permanent City Manager.

Council received the quarterly budget-to-actuals report. There was also discussion on changes we want to make in financial reporting and budget amendments.

A request to bring early voting into Berkley City Limits was denied. We currently coordinate with the County and three other communities for an early voting center in Oak Park. We found that the costs to bring it to Berkley were not worth it for the few voters who take advantage of it. Nine days of early voting will remain available for all elections at the Oak Park City Facilities.

Council approved the first reading of an ordinance to streamline changing precinct boundaries. This is in part to allow us to reflect the court-ordered changes in state house districts.

Doug Provost was recognized for his 50 years of service as an umpire and supporter of the Berkley Dads' Club. Thank you, Doug!
