Township Committee Holds 2013's First Work Session Meeting
New format and schedule for public meetings starts tonight.
Tonight, Jan. 7, Springfield's Township Committee will hold its first work session meeting since 2009.
The meeting, to be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Fire Department headquarters, is an informal meeting where upcoming government actions will be discussed. The Committee will vote at their regular meeting the following night, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. at town hall. Members of the public are invited to attend both meetings.
Under the schedule of government meetings presented at the Jan. 1 reorganization meeting, workshop meetings will take place once a month, on Mondays preceding second Tuesdays of each month. Regular meetings will be held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, for a total of three monthly meetings.
The functions of the work sessions were absorbed into the twice a month regular meetings in 2010. In 2011, the Committee held four monthly meetings, all on Tuesdays, again without a work session before returning to bimonthly meetings in 2012.
