Soldotna Council meetings to be held Thursdays

Soldotna City Council members will be able to rock out at Music in the Park, or other Wednesday events, this summer.

The council approved a resolution changing their regular meeting day from Wednesday to the second and fourth Thursday of each month. The change will take effect in July.

The council unanimously approved the resolution with full support of the administration. According to City Manager Stephanie Queen, the change won’t affect deadlines or projects.

Wednesday nights in Soldotna can get busy with Music in the Park at Soldotna Creek Park and the Salmon Run Series at Tsalteshi Trails.

“We live here due to our quality of life and wonderful community events,” said Council Member Tim Cashman at Wednesday night’s meeting. “Some of our largest community events happen on Wednesdays during our meetings.”
