The bylaw which governs the structure of municipal council meetings will be revisited in January.

Mayor Peter Waterman said he would like to see a change to the structure of the meetings to allow the public to raise questions about agenda items at the start of the meeting.

He said this change is needed to provide more opportunity for the public to speak.

Under the existing structure, there is a time for questions after the meeting has been adjourned.

Waterman also would like to move the Committee of the Whole meetings to Monday evenings. At present, the committee meetings are held on Monday mornings. Items are considered and clarified at these meetings, but resolutions are not passed.
