After several months without work sessions, the Crossville city council made a number of changes to their meeting schedules returning regular meetings to Tuesdays as well as moving time for public comment to near the start of the council meetings.
Crossville city council: L-R J.H. Graham, Danny Wyatt, Mayor James Mayberry,
Pamala Harris and Scot Shanks
Councilman Danny Wyatt lead the discussion and moved to change the council's standing rules to reinstate work sessions on the first Tuesday of each month with the council's regular meetings returned to the second Tuesday of each month.
In addition the council agreed to move the time of public comment that has been at the end of the council meeting to near the front of the council meeting. This change would give citizens a chance to address the council before they take an action during the meeting rather then reacting to an action after the decision has been made. The time of public comment would follow the time of proclamations and presentations on the council's regular agenda.
Crossville city council discusses meeting changes.
The change of the meeting date as the change to the comment are required to be made using an ordinance that will require two additional meetings while the reinstatement of work sessions is done by resolution to approve the council's standing rules and only requires approval a single time.
All three of the actions were rolled into a single action and the council approved all the changes in a single unanimous vote.
