Arcata Council to finalize Task Force to balance city's budget

ARCATA- The City Council will discuss membership to the budget task force on Wednesday. The group of city employees and community members will help to balance the city's budget to help eliminate the city's deficit.

Three city employees will be appointed into the position at the meeting and the council will discuss how many residents will serve on the task force. 

Also Wednesday, the council will reconsider their decision to create a new street connecting O to N street in the Creamery District. 

The city approved 8 1/2 Street in September, but nearby residents worry the road will create more traffic. The council will take a look at the previous decision and look at other alternatives.
