Heads-Up for the December 9, 2015 Park Board Special Meeting

6:05 P.M.  SPECIAL BOARD MEETING. The meeting will be held at City Hall, 250 South 4th Street, in room 333.  

The following is an explanation for the MIA agenda items by Park Board Commissioner Annie Young:

The Minneapolis Institute of Art sits on Park Board property and there is a tax levy associated with that.  We do this every year. It also should be noted that the Park Board was instrumental in getting admission to the Institute free to the public.  It should also be noted the incredible contributions of the MIA Board of Directors both to the Arts and Parks over the years.  It is a mutually beneficial relationship for both organizations.

The agenda is as follows:

–Setting the 2016 Tax Levy for the Park Museum Fund

–Adopting the 2016 Park Museum Budget

–Setting the 2016 Tax Levy for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board

–Adopting the 2016 Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board Budget
