The updated schedule is set to take place in June
VANCOUVER – The Clark County Council this week decided to add public meeting dates to its monthly schedule. In addition to the regular meeting schedule of 10 a.m. on the first Tuesday of the month and 6 p.m. on the third Tuesday, a public meeting will be scheduled for 10 a.m. on the fourth Tuesday. A meeting also will be set on the calendar for 1 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month if it is needed. If it is not needed, a cancellation notice will be sent 24 hours in advance.
The council also decided to add scheduled 20-minute breaks to public hearings. The breaks are scheduled to begin at approximately one hour and 50 minutes after the start of the meeting, and at that time, the council will assess if the break is needed.
County Manager Kathleen Otto said these changes are in accordance with the council’s rules and procedures. The updated schedule is set to take place in June.
“The council has a variety of projects underway, and the additional meetings will provide the ability to allow enough time for thoughtful consideration and public participation,” said Otto.
Information on council meetings including schedules and how to participate is on the county’s website at https://clark.wa.gov/councilors/clark-county-council-meetings. Council hearings are broadcast on CVTV channel 23/323 and CVTV.org.
