Middletown council changes course, will keep meeting on Tuesdays instead of Wednesdays

Middletown Borough Council is not changing its meeting dates for 2020 after all.

Council by 7-0 vote during its Jan. 15 meeting decided to stick with the same schedule of public meetings it has adhered to since early 2016 — 7 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of every month, unless otherwise noted.

Council Jan. 6 had voted to move its meetings for 2020 to the first and third Wednesdays of each month, to avoid a conflict with Middletown Area School Board which also meets on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.

However, council President Angela Lloyd on Jan. 15 requested council “revisit” the setting of meeting dates for 2020.

After the Jan. 6 meeting, Lloyd said she had learned that council’s decision to set the meetings for the first and third Wednesdays would lead to some scheduling conflicts for some borough staff members — leading to council’s vote to revert back to the schedule that was in place for 2019.
