The Clinton County Legislature meets twice a month on Wednesdays, and has committee meetings in between, similar to the city’s new arrangement.
Calnon said a committee-meeting schedule will be put out soon. Committees will meet at 5 p.m. on Thursdays when the regular council does not convene, and the sessions are open to the public.
Calnon said weekly city bills and payroll will be audited, as required, by the three councilors that attend committee meetings on the weeks when the regular council does not meet.
“Our goal is to eventually go to biweekly payroll, which will save money and time, and hopefully, we can accomplish that this year,” he said.
