Morden's Mayor says Council is working towards their promise of increased transparency.

To make local government more open to their constituents, Committee of the Whole (COW) meetings will be moved to be held evenings instead of mornings.

Moving the time of the meeting was on many of the Councillor's campaign agenda, says Mayor Brandon Burley, but changing when those meetings take place, have been a bit of a challenge.

"The difficulty with that is the first COW meeting we had lasted for about seven hours, so we need to work on getting that whittled down a little bit. The last one was five hours, so we're making progress in the right direction."

Burley says Committee of the Whole is designed to allow people to observe the work the government is doing, and moving the meetings evenings is a step towards accessibility.

Though this may not change the attendance issues, the government is giving people the opportunity Burley says." That is the message we are wanting to send; we're are ready to be as transparent as often as possible."

The meetings will be moved to Monday evenings at 6 pm, the first will take place on January 7th, 2019.
