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.
As the days get longer, the meetings will start later. From April 1 to Sept. 30, meetings will start at 6 p.m.
Several meetings were also cancelled, including the Jan. 6, Aug. 5, Aug. 17 and Sept. 21.
The next Parksville city council meeting will take place at 3 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 20.
