New start time proposed for city meetings to improve ‘openness’

You will likely have to hustle out of work a little early to catch the start of city council meetings after the elected officials voted to begin moving to an earlier start time.
City council passed third reading on Nov. 22 on a proposed amendment to the Council Procedure Bylaw that will change the monthly regular and committee-of-the-whole (COW) meeting time from 7 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Council’s previous practice has been to include a special meeting with an in-camera session before every regular and committee-of-the-whole meeting.
