As Spring Hill city leaders were finalizing the city's budget for the 2020 fiscal year back in May, Alderman Dan Allen proposed disbanding the city's Economic Development Commission, a board led by Alderman Vincent Fuqua.

Calling the commission essentially a "slush fund," Alderman Matt Fitterer agreed with Allen's proposal, as did three other aldermen. Despite the vote to disband the commission, the issue was tabled for a later date as a means to move forward with the new year's budget.

Now, on Monday, December 6, Spring Hill leaders will once again discuss disbanding the commission during their monthly non-voting meeting scheduled for 6 p.m.

That meeting will be held in-person Monday night at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 199 Town Center Parkway. To stream the meeting online, click here.

The Economic Development Commission was first established in 1999.

This story was edited on Dec. 7 to correct an error in which Monday night's meeting was described as a voting meeting. Monday night's meeting will be a non-voting meeting. The commission also has not had any funds allocated towards it in the current fiscal year's budget.
