Timer could be added to city council meetings

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Following a marathon meeting less than two weeks ago, the Rochester City Council could be moving toward having a timer.

City Clerk Aaron Reeves tells us the decision to add timers for public input on projects is not only to move the meetings along but other cities have similar rules. He tells us a resident will have 10 minutes to talk and then if they want to go back up during the meeting, they will need to be called up by council. This comes on the heels of a council meeting which lasted until the next morning and covered various topics like Uber.

Officials say they will look at the rules on Monday.
