Special Council Session: March 25

The Ann Arbor city council has called a special session for Monday, March 25, 2013 starting at 6 p.m. in second-floor city council chambers at 301 E. Huron St.

The purpose of the special meeting is considering a resolution to approve a collective bargaining agreement with Local 369 of the International Union of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) AFL-CIO. The agreement would run from March 25, 2013 through Dec. 31, 2017, a bit under five years. The special meeting might also include a closed session to discuss labor negotiation strategy.

The council already had a budget work session scheduled for the same time. So the budget work session will start immediately following the special meeting. The topics of the budget session will include the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority, as well as council budgeting priorities.
