Parksville council meeting times to change with the season

First meeting of new year on Jan. 20, 2020

Parksville city council meeting times will reflect the seasons after an amendment made at the Dec. 16 council meeting passed unanimously.

Coun. Doug O’Brien proposed an amendment “to reflect a winter and summer schedule based on daylight, basically,” said O’Brien.

Starting in the new year, council meetings from Jan. 1 to March 31 will take place at 3 p.m.
