City council OKs new meeting day
The Langley City Council voted to move its meeting dates from Wednesdays to Mondays.
The change starts in September. However, because the first Monday in September is Labor Day, the first council meeting will actually be on Tuesday, Sept. 2.
After that, all meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Monday of each month at city hall, unless that Monday is a holiday.
Mayor Paul Samuelson said the change is a better fit for everyone’s schedule at city hall.
