Also, the Plan Commission has historically met on Monday evenings at 5:30. In light of recent interest by members of the Plan Commission, staff is exploring moving Plan Commission meetings to Tuesday evenings on the weeks that the Common Council is not scheduled to meet and BCCs are not otherwise prohibited from meeting by Madison General Ord...
