The Milwaukie City Council will hold a public meeting on June 7, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. at 10722 SE Main Street, Milwaukie, Oregon 97222. The purpose of this meeting is to change the bonded debt levy amounts which the Budget Committee approved on May 12, 2016 because subsequently, the voters of Milwaukie approved a new general obligation bond issue for library expansion at the May 17, 2016 election.
