The Town of Morinville wants to change the start time for their bi-weekly council meeting from 7:30 p.m. to earlier.
Issues of large time gaps between afternoon meetings and evening council raised multiple concerns by councillors at their last meeting.
"If we don't have anything planned and our meetings have an hour to two hours between them, it just makes financial sense to start them earlier," said councillor Nicole Boutestein. "It's not about going home earlier, it's about using our time wisely."
Potential benefits brought up include financial savings (less overtime costs) and less banked hours.
More community engagement was included as well, with council wondering if people chose not to attend due to meetings running late.
Administration will look into this idea and will bring the information back to council.
