Bainbridge council to change weekly meeting date

The Bainbridge Island City Council will consider changing the day it meets each week from Wednesday to Tuesday.

The city council will consider amending the Bainbridge municipal code at this week's meeting to move council meetings to Tuesday evenings.

Councilman Val Tollefson presented the idea at a January session to move the meeting day, after Tollefson said he realized that changing it to Tuesday would give city staff more time to perform their duties efficiently.

The topic was recently discussed at a special council retreat, with council members favoring a move to Monday or Tuesday. Most on the council said Tuesday was the preferred meeting date.

If the ordinance is passed, the change would be effective March 1.

The city council will discuss changing the meeting schedule during the later half of the staff intensive portion of this week's agenda, slated for 7:25 p.m. Wednesday.
