REAL ESTATE SIGNS

The City Council on Tuesday will consider a proposed ordinance allowing temporary open house flags on residential that are up for sale, rent or lease.

The city’s municipal code currently prohibits the use of temporary real estate open house flags. The proposed ordinance would lift the prohibitions by limiting the use of the temporary flags for open house sales events.

The proposed ordinance would also regulate the number, size and the placement of the flags.

The Planning Board in March unanimously recommended the ordinance to the City Council.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The council is expected to pass the ordinance, which is expected to be a boon to buyers, sellers and real estate professionals.

2009-10 BUDGET

The council is expected to adopt a balanced $774-million city budget for the 2009-10 fiscal year that includes a $147-million general fund, which pays for public services like police and libraries.

Each city department was required to cut their budgets by 5% to help shave about $7 million from the general fund, half of which is devoted to safety services such as the Police and Fire departments. Officials arrived at a balanced budget only after freezing vacant positions, cutting programs and raising fees.

If approved, the budget plan would also include an increase in the average resident’s utility bills by $6.50 for water, $8 for electric, $2 for trash collection and $1 for sewer services.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The council is expected to pass the budget.
