The session will begin at 9 a.m. and run until 2 p.m.

“As president of the council I feel that it is very important to take time out to train as a group to ensure that we are staying on the right path for the betterment of this city,” President Austin said. “This training session is the second of its kind under this administration, and I look forward to all that we will accomplish.”
