PARKERSBURG, WV (WTAP)-- Parkersburg City Council votes to alter public forum limits... again.
The public forum time limit will now be three minutes for each speaker, up to a half an hour per meeting.
And topics will no longer be limited to agenda items.
Prior to the 6-to-1 vote, public forum speakers were limited to five minutes and restricted to only items appearing on the council agenda.
In other business, Mayor Tom Joyce distributed the proposed city budget for council consideration. Public hearings will be held over the next several weeks.
And, council renamed their small conference room to honor retiring city employee Glenn Meeks after several decades of service to the city building.
