Lubbock City Councilman Todd Klein Makes Push For Evening Meetings [POLL]

Cole Shooter, KFYO.com

A Lubbock City councilman is making a push to have Council meetings in the evening hours.

Currently, Lubbock City Council meetings begin with a citizen comment session at 7:30 a.m. every other Thursday, but District 3 Councilman Todd Klein issued a release voicing his support for moving meetings to the evening hours.

“I truly believe the public wants to witness and play a role in the process of our community discussion and debate,” Klein said. “The general public at large works during the hours of the council meeting. Tomorrow, I will recommend that every quarter of the year the council should have at least one evening meeting.”

District 4 Councilman Paul R. Beane disagrees with the idea of regular evening meetings, due to the long hours often involved.

“A meeting starting at 7:30 in the evening rather than 7:30 in the morning sometimes could run until 3:00 in the morning”, said Beane. “You know, if we could cut down on some of the conversation at City Hall, possibly we could shorten these meeting times, and possibly a meeting at 7:30 in the evening wouldn’t be that bad, but right now, I’ve got to say no dice.”

Would evening meetings help you voice your concerns at City Hall? Let us know what you think.
