The public hearing at City Hall on March 19th provides an opportunity to let one’s thoughts be known before decisions are made by the City Council. One agenda item is the creation of two non-voting positions on the Board of Education which would be reserved for students from the Hartford Public Schools. Currently, students have little-to-no input on the decisions being made which impact their educations. With the passage of this ordinance, student BOE members would have one-year terms and would be appointed by the mayor. This ordinance has been introduced by Councilpersons Anderson, DeJesus, Deutsch, Kennedy, MacDonald, and Wooden.
Other items on Monday’s agenda include an ordinance authorizing supplemental appropriation ($642,545) to the Hartford Public Schools, a lease amendment, an easement agreement, an increase on the income limits for elderly who are eligible for tax relief and the renaming of two streets.
The public hearing will begin at 7pm in Council Chambers.
