After decades of convening on Monday evenings, the Bellevue City Council will meet on Tuesday this week, reflecting a permanent change.
The City Council voted in February to move its meetings from the second and fourth Monday of each month to the first and third Tuesday.
The change comes under the direction of a new administration, including Mayor Rusty Hike and City Administrator Jim Ristow, both of whom started in December.
Hike has said the change will give council members an extra day after the weekend to address concerns or ask questions about the agenda ahead of the meeting.
The change aligns Bellevue’s council meetings with those of its Sarpy County sister cities. Gretna, Springfield, La Vista and Papillion, as well as nearby Ralston, all meet on the first and third Tuesday of the month.
Ralston’s meetings begin at 5:30 p.m., Bellevue’s at 6 p.m., Gretna’s at 6:30 p.m., and Papillion’s and La Vista’s at 7 p.m. Starting June 4, the La Vista City Council will convene at 6 p.m.
Bellevue’s council meetings are held at 1500 Wall St.
