Will meet on Jan. 15 at new starting time of 6 p.m.

The Taft City Council traditionally meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month.

But they'll be canceling the first meeting of 2013 because it falls on New Year's Day.

The council will next meet on Jan. 15.

That meeting will be the first at the newly adopted meeting time.

The council will begin its regular meetings at 6 p.m., an hour ahead of the current starting time.
