Commissioners to hold Monday night meeting

Officials: Time change designed to increase public input

The Cole County Commission hasn’t done it many times, but that may change.

In hopes of increasing public input on issues, commissioners are holding a night meeting Monday.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m. and will be held at the commission chambers in the courthouse annex.

Depending on what type of attendance they get, commissioners may have more night meetings in the future and might hold them at other towns.

On the agenda is a discussion about Public Works projects planned for this year.

There also will be an update from the commission that has been appointed to look at county zoning.

Last July, a public meeting was held to get resident input on county zoning. The goals include separating residential from commercial and industrial developments and allowing for mixed-use opportunities.

Zoning districts that have been looked at include: rural-agriculture, single-family residential, local commercial, light industrial and mixed use.

If the commission approves a zoning plan, it would have to be taken to voters — possibly later this year — for final approval.
