The Tuesday evening for the Cortland City Council began at 6:30 with six public hearings that drew two speakers.
Hearings on the city’s General, Waste and Wastewater Budgets, and another concerning the pH of sewage discharges, drew no comments.
One person spoke at the public hearing about reducing the speed limit on Graham Ave to 20 mph. Jo Schaffer was all for the reduction, saying it will give people a “fighting chance” to safely cross the street.
Schaffer and a neighbor also supported a possible parking ban on a short stretch of Warren Street, west of Pearl Street.
During the regular council meeting, dates for two new public hearings were set: December 6 for hearings on a local law regarding Tobacco Use on City Property, and another local law regarding the cleanup of former methamphetamine labs.
Also at that meeting December 6, aldermen are expected to vote on the city’s 2017 General, Waste, and Wastewater budget proposals.
