Council considers nighttime sessions


Wheat said he purposely omitted mention of evening meetings in his motion.“I don’t like the idea that we absolutely set a blanket policy that we can’t have night meetings,” Wheat said.“There’s nothing that we’ve done in the past that requires us to have night meetings,” Councilman Gene Thompson said. “There is still the possibility there could be a night meeting in 2014 if this council decides to have it.”Thompson had said he was “uncomfortable” with a motion that specified no evening meetings, “because we may need one.”The council held two evening sessions this year. Attendance at one was sparse, but a session during which funding of the Mapleview Rest Home was discussed drew a capacity audience.
