(ABC 6 NEWS) – The Rochester City Council will be hard at work on Monday for a study session and city council meeting.

During the study session, council members will discuss the 2022-2023 city budget. The proposal includes a possible 6.5% property tax increase.

The council will also look at the possibility of opening Silver Lake Pool in 2022, and transit ridership projections.

The council is set to approve the preliminary budget on September 20th.

The study session begins at 3:30 p.m.

The Rochester City Council will then meet at 6:15 p.m., and there are several things on the agenda.

The council plans to review the emergency meeting held on August 19, where the council voted to end Mayor Norton’s mask mandate.

There are also plans to look at the 2021 Med City Arts Festival, removing special parking meter restrictions and adding more parking meters.

The council will also hold a public hearing on the possible probation of Los Jarritos Cafe. The Rochester City Clerk and Rochester Police Department recently sent a memo to the council recommending that the restaurant be placed on probation after multiple incidents in the past year, including fights, stabbings, and gunshots.

They will also look over the new seasonal parking guidelines that will change to November 1 through April 1. This is starting one month later and ending one month earlier compared to the last restrictions.

Both meetings are in-person and online. Masks are required if you attend in person.
