Administrative Council Liaison Update – December 2018

By Councilor Nicole Mace – nmace@winooskivt.org

As you may have heard, Winooski City Council will be distributing monthly updates to better inform our residents and to encourage engagement around the important work being done in our community. The full announcement can be read here.

I am currently serving as the Administrative Liaison for the Council. I’m excited to share our update with you – there’s a lot going on in our City!

This month I met with the City Manager to review the proposed FY20 municipal budget. Tonight (December 3rd) the City Council will receive this proposed budget. You can find the complete budget packet here: https://www.winooskivt.org/city-budgets (click on “FY20 Proposed Budget”). This proposal includes capital funding to move forward with the Main Street Revitalization project and the Myers Memorial Pool replacement.

You can learn more about the FY20 Proposed Budget at the following events:

  • December 10th – Council meeting – General Government Review
  • December 17th – Council meeting – Community Services Review
  • January 7th – Council meeting – Public Works & Capital Improvement Plan Review
  • January 14th – Council meeting – Public Safety Review
  • January 22nd – Council meeting – FY20 budget discussion
  • January 28th – Council meeting – Approve FY20 budget and set Town Meeting Day warning
  • February 20th – Community Dinner on FY20 Budget
  • March 4th – Town Meeting Day Presentation
  • March 5th – Town Meeting Day – Voting day!

The budget process outlines how we will use tax, fee, and rate dollars to fund the City’s vision. We are also in the process of rewriting the City’s Master Plan that outlines this vision for the future. The Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing on this Master Plan on December 13th.  You can read this Plan at www.winooskivt.org/masterplan and provide comments right in the document.

This month we also welcomed our new City Treasurer, Alex Anastasi-Hill. Alex lives in Winooski, has a Bachelor’s of Science in Accounting, over five years of relevant financial oversight experience, and interesting ideas on how to report on the City’s finances. Welcome, Alex!

Finally, this month the City mourned the passing of our former Treasurer, Dr. Jim Ticehurst.

Dr. Ticehurst served the City and School District in many capacities for decades. We pass on our sympathies to the Ticehurst family and the many friends of Jim.
