BOSTON – City of Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer is scheduled to attend Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s State of the City address at Symphony Hall in Boston on Tuesday, January 15 at 6 p.m.
The Framingham City Council is meeting on Tuesday at 7 p.m., but the Mayor’s public schedule indicates she will be in Boston for Walsh’s address.
Mayor Spicer is scheduled to deliver her second State of the City of Framingham address on Monday, January 28 at 7 p.m. in Nevins Hall inside the Memorial Building. A snow date has been scheduled for January 31.
The City’s charter requires the Mayor to present a State of the City address in January. It states ” Each year in the month of January the mayor shall make an address to a joint meeting of the council, school committee, all elected and appointed members of municipal committees, boards, commission or officers, division heads, department directors and residents reporting on the state of affairs of Framingham.”
In 2018, Spicer announced on January 31, she would make her first State of the City address on February 5 at 6 p.m. The Mayor’s office in a statement then said “the timing of this requirement is one thing we simply decided could be pushed back a few days to ensure that it was a valuable event and worth people’s time to participate.”
Also in January 2019, Mayor Spicer will attend two conferences.
She is scheduled to attend the Massachusetts Municipal Association’s Conference in Boston from January 18-20 and she is scheduled to attend the U.S. Conference of Mayors winter meeting in Washington DC January 23-24-25.
