Letter: ‘Council meetings need to be at a convenient time’

December 3, 2022

Eric Hansen’s proposed new time for the Ashland City Council meeting is described as “pragmatic,” and Eric describes it as being more accessible. My question is: more accessible to whom? Certainly not people who have jobs, including councilors. 

Council meetings need to be at a convenient time for the citizens of Ashland to be able to participate, and the staff certainly need time for a meal break before these sometimes-very long council meetings. To have council meetings at 4 p.m. would make the council meetings less accessible, not more. 

I hope this does not come to pass. It would result in even fewer people in our community being informed.
