Budget Hearings -- DMD, DCE Budgets -- Final Changes

Tonight the Council's Metropolitan Development Committee will consider amendments to the budgets for the Department of Metropolitan Development and the newly formed Department of Code Enforcement.

Meeting begins at 5:30 pm in room 260 of the City-County Building.

We shall see if the DMD contract with Indianapolis Downtown Inc, which amounted to $142,144 for 2009, is discussed in light of a Star report by City beat reporter, Francesca Jarosz, that the City is cutting $500,000 from its usual $1 Million contribution to IDI. In 2009 contracts with IDI worth $300,000 and $600,000 were also awarded through DPW and the Indianapolis Bond Bank, respectively.

[edited on 9/15/09 to include : During the hearing, no mention was made of IDI.]
