Peabody officials have rescheduled a meeting with the Patrick-Murray Administration’s Municipal Affairs Coordinating Cabinet, which was scheduled for this morning.
The postponing comes after a conflict with the memorial service to honor MIT police officer Sean Collier, which was attended by Gov. Deval Patrick, , Lt. Governor Timothy Murray, and other administration officials who were scheduled to attend the cabinet meeting this morning.
Collier was killed after being ambushed by the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects late last Thursday evening.
The newly scheduled meeting will convene at City Hall on Tuesday May 7 at 10:05 a.m. The public is welcome to attend and participate in the discussion.
Murray will lead the meeting, which will highlight new and innovative developments in state and local government, and also promote resources and investments in Peabody and other cities and towns across Massachusetts.
“We are very pleased to host the Municipal Affairs Coordinating Cabinet meeting,” said Mayor Edward Bettencourt in a recent statement. “The Patrick-Murray Administration’s ongoing focus on economic growth at the state and local level continues to pay dividends for Peabody. I look forward to a very productive dialogue.”
The meeting will feature an overview of Gov. Deval Patrick’s Fiscal Year 2014 state budget proposal as well as remarks from a number of key Patrick-Murray Administration officials.
In addition to Murray attending, Secretary of Transportation Richard Davey, Deputy Commissioner of Revenue and Municipal Affairs Chairman Robert G. Nunes, Housing and Economic Development Assistant Secretary Jen Murphy, and Information Technology Division (ITD) Municipal Liaison Tim Sullivan are scheduled to attend, among other administration officials.
