It's City Council 101 for the soon-to-be freshman.

The six incoming members will get a crash-course today on the legislative ins and outs of Council during a freshman orientation in City Hall at 11 a.m. in the Caucus Room.

The orientation led by Charles McPherson, Council's chief financial officer; Herb Wetzel, executive director of Council's housing and community development committee; Michael Decker, Council's chief clerk and Hal Fichandler, special assistant to City Council. It will focus on the rules and procedures of Council. Some members of City Council's new leadership team will also be present.

Come Jan. 2, City Council will have its largest number of new faces since 1991, when seven new members were elected.
