What's on deck: LO Budget Committee meets tonight
Keeping up with local government can be tricky, and even seasoned veterans have difficulty deciphering agenda items at times.
So with our "What's On Deck" posts, we'll pick an upcoming agenda item (or two), fill you in and — when necessary — try to break through the city-speak.
Today, we look at the Lake Oswego Budget Committee, which is set to meet at 6 p.m. tonight at City Hall.
At this particular meeting, the committee will evaluate recommendations made by a subcommittee for how the City should allocate $35,000 in municipal grants in the 2019-21 budget. Those recommendations are as follows:
