Athens city officials are already starting plans for the city's infamous Halloween Weekend block party, though the event is almost two months away.
City officials already have Halloween Weekend on their minds, prompting several ordinances that will be read at the Athens City Council meeting in preparation for Athens’ largest event.
Athens City Council will resume their weekly meetings tonight at 7 p.m. in Athens City Building, 8 E. Washington St., after a month-long hiatus in August. Because council members haven’t met in four weeks, tonight’s meeting will hold both a committees meeting and a regular council session.
First on the agenda is a short presentation from the Finance and Personnel Committee, lead by councilwoman Chris Knisely, D-at large. Knisely will discuss the Richland South Project and the city’s plan to purchase road salt, as well as an amendment to the 2014 city staffing levels.
Council will then launch into their regular session, where they will read a handful of ordinances in preparation for the Halloween Weekend block party and Uptown Business Association’s Trick or Treat Event, scheduled for Oct. 27.
Council will also read an amendment to the 2014 appropriation ordinance.
