Possible changes to Collingwood council meetings

Collingwood | by Catherine Thompson  
One council meeting per month instead of two being proposed.

Collingwood councillors are considering some changes in when they meet.

The Corporate and Community Services Committee will consider, at it's meeting at 5 PM this evening (Monday), staff recommendations aimed at giving residents more time to read agendas.

The recommendation is to still have standing committee meetings once a month, reporting to just one council meeting to be held at the end of the month. Council currently meets twice a month.

A staff report says this schedule would give the public more time to comment in between committee meetings and council and more time to resolve any outstanding issues before being considered by full council.

A recommendation is to also make agendas available to the public a day earlier, by 5 P.M. on Wednesdays for a Monday meeting.

The start time of committee and council meetings is to stay at 5 P.M.

All recommendations, if approved by the committee on Monday, will still need to be approved by full council.
