• Approved, 7-0, the first reading of the city's 2010 budget.
Before the vote, Councilor Jennifer Riley said she would like the council's vote to include a statement that the city is prepared to cease funding the All Crimes Enforcement Team drug task force unless some of its concerns about the agency are settled.
Riley added she does not think ACET should be shut down.
Several councilors agreed with her on both points but said the city could stop funding ACET at any time without a formal vote Tuesday.
The statement about ACET's future was not included in the final motion and not voted on by the council.
