Dothan City Commissioners approved the motion to change the times of commission meetings from 10 o'clock in the morning to 5:30 in the evening.
The meetings will be held every other Tuesday in the commission chambers of Roy Driggers municipal building effective January 8th.
Officials hope that this will increase the number of citizens attending the meetings and that more opinions and ideas can be heard.
City officials urge the public to participate in their government.
Because the time change may affect households with kids, residents can bring their children to the meeting.
If this new meeting time does not work out because of low attendance by the public yhere may be another vote to change it again.
