CAPE CORAL, Fla- At a workshop Monday the Cape Coral City Council will consider replacing the prayer that regularly opens their meetings with a moment of silence.
The proposal was drafted by Councilman Chris Chulakes-Leetz and the City Attorney. Chulakes-Leetz says it's a way to simplify the meetings. Council members and those in the audience would still be allowed to pray but just by themselves.
Council members are also considering a couple of other changes to the way they conduct their meetings. Including expanding the public comment periods and how they plan their agendas.
This meeting is just a workshop. Council members will debate the change but not actually vote. It starts this afternoon at 4:30 in the council chambers.
