Council Work Sessions replaced with City Council Meetings

In an effort to promote a more effective city government and increase the opportunity for citizen input, Mayor Applegarth is replacing bi-monthly Council Work Sessions with regular City Council meetings. During weekly City Council meetings, the Council can vote on Discussion/Action items and Public Comments are among standard agenda items—two options not available during Council Work Sessions. This provides the Council flexibility to act promptly regarding items during each session.
