Kingston City Council members will have extra insight into city budget matters throughout the fiscal year after they passed an ordinance establishing a financial review committee.
According to Mayor Troy Beets, the committee will have no decision-making power, but will act as a liaison between council and city financial planners. The committee will consist of two council members, the city manager, the city budget officer, plus an administrative employee.
Council members Tony Brown and Norman Sugarman will be the first councilmen to serve on the committee. The votes on their appointment, as well as the vote establishing the committee, were all unanimous.
In other council business, council passed on second reading an amending to the city ordinance to remove domicile and residency questions on liquor license applications.
