Berkeley, California (Monday, December 01, 2008) - The Berkeley City Council will have a regular meeting on Monday, December 8. Most regular council meetings are on Tuesdays; this one has been rescheduled so that it does not conflict with the Islamic holiday of Eid al Adha.

The December 8 meeting will include a 5 p.m. Council workshop on the budget. The workshop will include a FY 2008 Year-End summary, a FY 2009 First Quarter update, project priority update and a report on state budget impacts.
The regular meeting will begin at the usual time of 7 p.m., at which time the new and re-elected Council members will be ceremoniously sworn in by Acting City Clerk Deanna Despain.
The rest of the agenda will be posted to the City’s website on Wednesday, December 3. The next Council meeting will be on Tuesday, December 16, at 7 p.m. The Council will then be in recess until January 13.
