Wawa Council Approves Plans To Start Meetings Later

Wawa Municipal Council meetings will start slightly later from now on.

The idea was discussed at last week's Corporate Planning Committee meeting, with Councillor Bill Chiasson citing complaints from community members and Councillor Robert Reece noting his own concerns about the 6 o'clock start, given how close it is to the end of his usual work day.

While the municipal procedural by-law does state meetings should begin at 7, Council's passed resolutions temporarily changing that to 6 since September 2015 - the resolution passed last night is similar, changing the start time for meetings to 6:30 for regular Council and committee meetings from March through June.
