Atherton's City Council meets tonight, June 21, to discuss adopting a 2017-18 fiscal year budget with $13 million in general fund spending.
Also on the agenda are: how to reduce costs for the new civic center, town committee appointments, and a possible letter to San Mateo County about San Carlos Airport operations.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the town's council chambers at 94 Ashfield Road.
The council has discussed its budget in four study sessions. The $13 million in planned general fund spending would be 5.1 percent more than was spent in the 2016-17 fiscal year. General fund revenues are projected to be $14.3 million.
The council will also discuss ways to reduce the costs of its new civic center. A staff report says that project manager Mack5 has suggested that bids could come in up to 10 percent higher than its most recent estimates.
The report gives the council a list of ways that costs could be reduced, ranging from delaying the construction of a new council chamber to using asphalt shingles instead of clay tiles on the new office buildings and planting only grass in lieu of other landscaping.
