The Springfield Utility Board met in a virtual special meeting with SUB’s Budget Committee on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. to begin its deliberations on SUB’s proposed 2022 Utility Operating Budget. The Budget Committee completed its review of the proposed 2022 Budget during that meeting. As a result, the second meeting that was scheduled on November 9 is no longer needed and has been canceled.

The Springfield Utility Board now plans to hold its second special meeting with SUB’s Budget Committee on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, at 5:00 p.m., if needed. The purpose of this meeting is for the Budget Committee to allow time for any further discussion on the proposed 2022 Budget, following the public hearings scheduled during the regular Board meeting on November 10. If the Committee has no further recommendations to the Board, following the November 10 Board meeting, and the Budget Committee desires no further deliberations on the 2022 Budget, then this meeting will be canceled.

Members of the public are invited to join the Budget Committee meeting via phone or internet by following instructions that will be available on the agenda posted to SUB’s website prior to the meeting at www.subutil.com. Those joining remotely will be prompted for comment during the meeting. Public comment may also be submitted in advance via the email link provided on the agenda by Noon, November 16.
