At the July 18 regular meeting, the Sterling Heights City Council voted to change the start time of regular meetings from 7:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. As such, beginning on Aug. 1, all regular City Council meetings will begin at 7 p.m.
City Council meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of each month in the Council Chambers of the Richard J. Notte City Center at 40555 Utica Road.
The earlier start time is intended to encourage more residents to attend meetings in-person, watch live meetings online or view live on cable television, according to City Clerk Melanie Ryska. A 7 p.m. start time will give more people time to make the meetings after work, while minimizing late-hour meetings, she said.
Additionally, the “Communications from Citizens” portion of the agenda will move up to 9:30 p.m. if the business portion of the agenda has not concluded.
All City Council meeting dates are available on the City Calendar on the City website at www.sterling-heights.net. City Council meetings are also recorded in their entirety and made available on the City’s website for later viewing.
