LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) -- The Loveland City Council is considering proposals to change how members of the public can address council members at open meetings.

The Loveland Daily Reporter-Herald reports that council members on Tuesday will voted on a proposal that would allow groups to have a 30-minute study session to discuss issues in depth if 10 residents and two council members support the issue.

The proposal comes as the council has been dealing with so-called "daisy-chain" comment periods at meetings. Recently a resident wanted to show a series of videos at a meeting. Once her allotted three minutes were up, supporters of her issue took the floor and ceded their three minutes for the first woman's videos.

Council members say the change would speed up meetings without losing public insight.
