Re: KTW’s story of Feb. 27 regarding Kamloops Coun. Dale Bass’s push for night council meetings (‘Will the sun set on Kamloops council meetings?’):
Council currently meets at an inconvenient time of 1:30 p.m. on Tuesdays.
This meeting time restricts the attendance of myself and many other Kamloopsians.
The claim by some councillors that poor attendance at afternoon meetings is a reason to not move to evening meetings is hollow.
Council meetings need to be more accessible. Councilors must commit to doing everything possible to encourage and facilitate public involvement.
I believe evening meetings will provide for better engagement opportunities and increased accountability.
With council reorganizing its committees, would it also be timely to re-organize council meetings?
