At last week’s meeting, the Council discussed next year’s Council meeting dates and formats and asked staff to return with new options.

Staff presented a new agenda format at last week’s Worksession that will combine Worksession and Regular agenda items at the same meeting so that all meetings and all agendas are the same.

Currently, the work sessions and regular meetings occur on alternative weeks. Regualr meetings are concluded fairly quickly, however worksessionsa have been fairly long, often end until midnights.

The Council generally supported this hybrid format.

Until the full 2023 schedule is agreed to, we need to move forward with the approval of the January 2023 meeting dates. The Council will vote to approve the January Mayor and Council meeting dates: January 10, 17, 24, and 31.
