WESTON — Weston’s City Council will hold a special meeting at 5 p.m. today to consider changing the number of Planning Commission members.
The resolution the Council is considering would change the Commission from five to three members, with two alternates who would serve if regular members were unable to attend a meeting.
Currently, the Commission has four seats filled with two applications pending.
Mayor Duane Thul said in recent meetings that the Commission did not have a quorum of three members because two of its four members had other obligations. This has prevented the city from approving planning business in a timely fashion.
If approved, the resolution will pave the way for a commission meeting on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The agenda includes consideration of an application by John Pike to build a garage, as well as the adoption of a planning appeals process.
Thul said only two of the Commission’s current four members will be able to attend Tuesday’s meeting, which is why the council is holding a special meeting Monday to consider changing the number of members.
