On the Agenda: Cape Coral City Council COW Meeting Preview (Mar. 27)

Tonight the city council will hold its first Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting of 2017.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 4:30pm in Council Chambers at City Hall, located at 1015 Cultural Park Blvd., Cape Coral. The meeting is open to the public.

COW meetings differ from the city council's regular meeting in that COW meetings focus on a few specific items and issues rather than a full agenda of items. Also, no votes on issues or items are taken during the meeting; rather the city council will focus on discussion of those items to prepare for future voting.
