City Council Meetings to Return to Usual Start, With Public Comment at Beginning
Mayor Ron Kim announced today that meetings of the Saratoga Springs City Council will return to their usual start time of 7:00 PM, with public comment at the beginning, starting March 7, 2023.
“I conferred with all members of City Council prior to announcing that the start time and order of meetings would be changed to allow for longer public comment, and all four Commissioners agreed to the change. Having received feedback from the community, I’ve ultimately decided the public will be better served with meetings starting at 7 PM, and public comment being held at the beginning of the meeting.”
