For the remainder of 2017, the Athens-Clarke County Mayor & Commission has approved changes to the meeting times for both the Regular Voting Session and Agenda Setting Session meetings of the Mayor and Commission. The meeting times have been been changed to 6:00 p.m. from the previous times of 7:00 p.m.
The Regular Voting Session is held on the first Tuesday of each month except in the event of a holiday or election involving a seat of the Mayor or Commission, in which case the meeting is held on the Wednesday after the first Tuesday of the month. The non-voting Agenda Setting Session is held on the third Tuesday of each month and sets the agenda for the next month's voting meeting. Both the Regular Voting Session and the Agenda Setting Session are held in the Commission Chambers in City Hall at 301 College Avenue.
The Mayor and Commission voted to change the time for the Regular Voting Session during their 2017 organizational meeting on January 3, 2017 and the time for the Agenda Setting Session at a Special Called Session on Tuesday, January 10, 2017. The changes will take effect as of the next Agenda Setting Session on January 17, 2017.
Both the Regular Voting Session and Agenda Setting Session meetings are broadcast live on ACTV, the government access channel available on Charter Spectrum cable channel 180 and University Cablevision channel 6.1. Both meetings are also streamed live and available for on-demand online viewing at www.athensclarkecounty.com.videos.
The Mayor and Commission will continue to hold their Work Session meetings beginning at 5:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month at the Dougherty Street Governmental Building Auditorium at 120 West Dougherty Street and their Government Operations Committee, Legislative Review Committee, and Audit Committee meetings in City Hall as scheduled by their committee chairs.
