Board will debate meeting start times

The debate over the start time for St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners meetings will be settled later this year.
At the request of Commissioner John Dobberteen, the issue of a 5 p.m. start versus a 6 p.m. call to order will be revisited in June.
The new-look county commission – a five-member board that starting Jan. 1 featured three new commissioners – agreed during their inaugural meeting in January to revise the start time from 5 o’clock to 6.
The explanation at the time given by Commissioner Kathy Pangle was that 6 p.m. is a friendlier start time for people who work first shift.
Meetings will continue to start at 6 p.m. until the matter is discussed June 6.
