The Glendale Board of Aldermen could be starting its meetings a half hour earlier — at 7 p.m. instead of 7:30 p.m.

The board, which meets on the first and third Mondays of each month, is expected to vote on the time change at its next meeting on June 17.

City Administrator Benjamin DeClue said starting meetings a half hour earlier will bring Glendale in line with other municipality meeting start times.

The bill changing the meeting time also spells out current practices on public comments and the open forum portion of board meetings. During those times, any resident or representative of any business in the city can address the board. Each person addressing the board must state his or her name and address and, unless further time is granted by the mayor or presiding officer, must limit comments to three minutes.
