City of Fayetteville to consider new meeting schedule

The City of Fayetteville’s meeting calendar could soon look drastically different. Depending on the outcome at Thursday night’s meeting, City Council could drop down to one regular meeting a month.

Currently, the City Council of Fayetteville meets on the first and third Thursday of each month. The proposal would replace the first Thursday meeting with a work session instead of a regular Council meeting. The move would require adopting a resolution allowing council to make votes during the work sessions.

While the County Commission and the Peachtree City and the Town of Tyrone all host two official monthly meetings, the Board of Education sets their first meeting of the month as a work session and the second as a regular Board meeting.

If approved, the new schedule would go into effect August 2.
