Ferndale City Council members are expected to vote on the proposed fiscal year 2012-13 and 2013-14 budget at their 7:30 p.m. meeting tonight at City Hall.
The recommended budget, which council began reviewing April 9, includes a millage increase from 3 to 3.75 mills for 2012-13 and to 4.85 mills for 2013-14.
Also up for review on the agenda are a variety of special event permits and an ordinance on street vending in the downtown district. On April 23, council debated for more than one hour on a discussion of proposed restrictions to Ferndale’s street and mobile vendors.
Ultimately, Mayor David Coulter proposed that he and Councilman Dan Martin serve as a liaison committee of the council to work with the Downtown Development Authority and city administration for two weeks and come back with a recommendation at tonight's meeting.
