Council meetings

If you want to know what your municipal elected officials are doing for you, make a point of attending the council meetings in your community.

In Clinton, regular council meetings are held the second and fourth Wednesday of each month beginning at 7 p.m.

There is a question period near the beginning of each meeting where residents can make their opinions known about items on that evening’s agenda.
