Mayor R.T. Rybak has released his recommended 2013 budget for the City of Minneapolis and the City Council is currently reviewing the proposal in budget hearings with city departments. The Mayor has proposed a 1.7% property tax increase, adding firefighters and police officers, and recommends a reorganization of the Regulatory Services department.

The Mayor’s proposed 2013 budget and the schedule of budget hearings can be found at www.minneapolismn.gtov/finance/budget.

The city council will hold two public hearings on the tax levy and 2013 City budget:  The first is Wed, Nov. 28, 6:05pm, City Hall, 350 South 5th Street, Room 317. The City Council will consider adoption of the budget the same night as the second public hearing, which is Wed, Dec. 12, 6:05pm, City Hall, 350 South 5th Street, Room 317.

We’re getting close to the end of the construction season so lots of pieces of the project are coming together. Thomas and Sons is continuing the work in the 3500 block. The current schedule, weather dependent:

  • Sidewalk work starting October 26
  • Add black dirt in the boulevard areas Monday (October 29th)
  • Finish Sidewalk work Tuesday (October 30th)
  • Pave last layer of asphalt Wednesday (October 31st)

Minneapolis Traffic has been working on the permanent signals at 35th and 34th Streets. They may also remove some of the temporary poles on the north end of the project area.  When the temporary poles are removed in the 2012 project area, they may begin setting them up in the 2013 project area.

When will the trees get planted? Minneapolis Park Board intends to plant all the trees in the 2012 project area at the same time.   This means the trees will likely be planted next spring.   Read more

The first round of Minneapolis recycling customers will get new blue recycling carts in November! If one is delivered to your home, start using it immediately for all of your recycling. No sorting is needed; all of the recyclables simply go into the one cart. Recycling has never been easier. Just make sure not to include garbage or other non-recyclables, and rinse all your bottles, cans, jars and cartons.

Minneapolis is rolling out one-sort recycling in two phases; if you do not get the new cart with this rollout, you will begin when you get a cart next year in the second phase. A letter with instructions will come to your home about a week before you get the cart. While routes and schedules won’t change, the time the truck comes may change. Make sure to have your recycling at your collection point by 6 a.m. on your recycling day. You may keep your old bin for other uses or leave it at the curb or alley and city crews will recycle it. Since routes run street by street (and alley by alley) rather than by neighborhood or quadrant, the routes chosen for the first phase are all over the city. This is the most efficient way to roll out the new carts and keep your service high during the transition. Switching to one-sort recycling will not change the amount you pay for your recycling and garbage pickup. For more information, visit www.minneapolismn.gov/onesort.

 

- there’s still time to enroll!

Have you ever wondered how emergency calls in Minneapolis are dispatched?  How streets get plowed?  How the water gets to your faucet? Or, how property gets developed?  The answers to these questions and more will be discussed at the Minneapolis City Academy program. The City Academy will be held weekly from October 30th through November 27th at locations throughout Minneapolis.  The program is open to all Minneapolis residents who are 18 years or older.  The academy is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. http://db.tt/kzzXFN2T
