The Woodside Town Council will hold a public hearing and most likely a council vote on the town budget for the next 12 months at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Tuesday, June 22, at Independence Hall at the corner of Woodside and Whiskey Hill roads.
The projected reserve on a general fund budget of $5.6 million is $1.9 million, Town Manager Susan George said in a report to the Town Council. The council formally reviewed the 2010-11 budget on June 3.
Before the public hearing, the council will recognize Irenne Zwierlein, a longtime resident of Native American heritage and a member of the town's History Committee.
Ms. Zwierlein is a recipient of a "Mayors' Diversity" award from the San Mateo County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Ms. George said. The award recognizes Ms. Zwierlein's consulting work in protecting burial sites in Bay Area construction projects.
Each year, the cities and towns in the county nominate someone "from a diverse background," a category that covers anyone who is not Caucasian and includes members of the gay, lesbian, and transgender communities, Ms. George said.
This is the second year for the program, which awards multiple nominees from all over the county. Last year's honorees included Armando Muela, chief of the Woodside Fire Protection District.
