Planning commission meetings could start earlier

Brandon’s planning commission meetings could soon start half an hour earlier in an effort to alleviate staffing conflicts.

This will alter the start time of regular meetings from the usual 7:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. based on a recommendation made by the city’s planning and building safety department.

Currently, the planning commission convenes on the first and third Wednesday of each month.

During their Dec. 4 meeting, the planning commission discussed and endorsed the idea of changing the start time.

The proposed change is requested to alleviate staffing conflicts and to attempt to keep public hearings from extending too late into the evening.

The original bylaw was adopted by council in 2006 under the authority of the planning act to establish and assign responsibilities to the City of Brandon Planning Commission.

The change in start time only concerns the city’s planning commission and not the start time of regular city council meetings. Incorrect information appeared in Saturday’s Brandon Sun.

Second and third readings to amend the city’s planning commission bylaw were read but not passed at press time during Monday’s regular city council meeting.
