Bellingham Mayor to introduce biennial budget Monday

Mayor Kelli Linville will present the 2015-2016 biennial budget during a special City Council meeting Monday, Oct. 6.

The presentation is slated to go from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 210 Lottie St.

Following Monday’s introduction, the Council will meet to discuss portions of the budget each Monday through Dec. 15, when the final reading of the budget ordinance is scheduled to take place.

This will be the first truly biennial budget for the city since officials started the gradual transition away from an annual budget process in 2012.
