Next week aldermen, new members & those re-elected, will be sworn-in. Their official swearing in takes place in a conference room off their chambers, followed by a ceremonial swearing in during the first meeting of the new legislative session. Following all will proceed to the rotunda (though it is rectangular) for the inauguration of their board colleague as mayor. This will take place Tuesday April 18th.
I may attend Krewson’s inaugural, so I can hear her speech in full. The 2009 inaugural began at noon.
From a prior Board of Aldermen calendar:
- MONDAY, APRIL 17, 2017 – SINE DIE (LAST MEETING OF THE 2016-2017 SESSION)
- TUESDAY, APRIL 18, 2017 – FIRST MEETING OF THE 2017-2018 SESSION
- FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2017 – NO FULL BOARD MEETING
In theory the first meeting of the new Board of Aldermen should be Friday April 28th. As I did last year, on Friday’s I’ll post a list of new board bills being introduced.
