Council's rapid-fire meeting

Kelowna city councillors likely didn't know what to do with themselves Monday afternoon.

Normally, council is busy all afternoon on Mondays with its regular meetings at City Hall. But, this was no ordinary Monday.

A skimpy agenda was made even lighter when one item, a cost-sharing agreement with the province pertaining to the six-laning of Highway 97, was withdrawn by staff.

Just 22 minutes after starting the meeting, Mayor Colin Basran banged his gavel a second time, bringing proceedings to a halt.

Quick, but not record setting.

City clerk Stephen Fleming says a meeting conducted by Coun. Barrie Clark in 2004 or 2005 lasted just 12 minutes. However, he suspended the traditional councillor items at the end of the meeting.

Fleming says Monday's meeting was the shortest of this current council.
