Bemidji City Council to begin 2023 budget discussion
During its May 23 session, the Bemidji City Council will review possible adjustments to the city’s budget for 2023.
BEMIDJI — Discussions for next year’s budget will begin during the Bemidji City Council’s work session tonight.
The council will review different financial questions that will need to be considered in order to create a formal city budget for 2023.
These include the possibilities of new city staff, such as the potential new assistant city manager position, as well as the ongoing question of how to move forward following the flood damage to the basement of City Hall.
Also under consideration will be how to budget for rising prices from inflation such as fuel and utilities.
While not formalizing a budget for next year, the council’s discussion during its work session will be the first step toward developing a financial plan for 2023.
The city council meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. tonight, May 23, at City Hall. The meeting can also be viewed on the city's website, www.ci.bemidji.mn.us.
