A joint statement from Beth Furtado, WSC Chair and Steve Merolla, City Council President was released today at 2:30 PM.             It reads;                       The parties are continuing to meet in an effort to resolve this matter.  It has been jointly agreed that the School Committee will not make a formal presentation at the October 1 City Council meeting.  An item regarding the Committee’s request is on the Docket for that City Council meeting.  The Finance Committee will probably hold the Resolution in Committee.
