Spouses and key city administrative team members also invited to the event, expected to last about an hour.

&uot;It’s a small get-together,&uot; said Craff.

Although light hors d’oeuvres will be served, no alcohol will be served on the city’s tab, he said.

City taxpayers are footing the bill for the gathering, which Craff estimated would cost about $1,000.
