The Paso Robles City Council will meet at an earlier time starting this fall.
On Tuesday, the council unanimously agreed to change the municipal code to move up its meeting start time from 7:30 to 6:05 p.m. A second reading is scheduled for Sept. 1 before the decision becomes final.
The new time is then set to take effect Oct. 6.
The idea in starting the council meetings later was to give members of the public enough time to have dinner with their families before attending, officials have said, but some people have complained that the late start means the meetings go on too late.
The new 6:05 p.m. time reflects the earliest slot that KPRL can provide its regular live radio broadcast of the meetings.
