SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- The Saratoga Springs City Council will take up two much-debated topics at tonight's meeting. The council is expected to discuss, and possibly vote on, a measure to roll back the city's last call from 4 a.m. to 3 a.m.
If approved, the measure would still need to go to the New York State Liquor Authority. Officials there have said before that the change would need to be made county-wide, not just city-wide.
The Council will also take up a proposal to change the city charter. The group Saratoga Citizen wants to change the city's government from a commission form to a council-manager form. That would put a professional city manager in charge of the city’s day-to-day operations.
