Beginning Tuesday, January 19, 2021, Nampa City Council meetings will begin one-half hour earlier at 5:30 p.m. and public hearings will begin at 6:30 p.m. Nampa City Council meetings are held the first and third Monday of each month at Nampa City Hall, located at 411 3rd Street South. If the Monday meeting falls on a holiday, the meeting is moved to the following day.
In recent years, many council meetings lasted past 10 p.m., with some even later. Nampa Mayor Debbie Kling proposed the earlier start time to accommodate residents and businesses participating in public hearings and awaiting council decisions.
Mayor Kling said, “We want to ensure council meetings are accessible, transparent and as accommodating as possible. Beginning our meeting and public hearings one-half hour earlier is a small way of showing the taxpayers we serve that we appreciate and respect their time.”
