Introducing City Council Work Sessions
Linden City Council will be introducing a new meeting schedule and format starting July 10th. Instead of two regular meetings a month, the Council will have one work session a month and one regular meeting a month. Work sessions are on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:30 PM and meetings are on the 4th Monday of each month at 7:00 PM.
Council meetings are formal meetings with official action, such as the passing of ordinances or resolutions. Work sessions are informal meetings designed to discuss the specifics of City business and offer the opportunity to focus more on long-term decisions, not just the day to day business of the City. This opportunity for discussion at the work sessions will presumably lead to shorter and more productive regular meetings.
Council meetings and work sessions will remain open to the public. Citizens are allowed to share comments during the Citizen Comments portion at the beginning of each meeting.
