CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS
City Council meetings are held in person in the Council Chambers and are open to the public with social distancing restrictions. Meetings will continue to be broadcast and streamed online for viewers to watch from the safety of their homes.
SEATING: A limited number of attendees will be allowed in the Council Chambers to view live meetings. Seats are first-come first-serve. Due to the limited seating, overflow space will be available in the City Hall lobby and the Lobby Conference Rooms with screens playing the meeting live.
PARTICIPATION: Due to the limited seating in the Council Chambers, those wishing to speak in person during public input items must sign up prior to the start of the meeting and will be called up to the podium one at a time. People wishing to speak in person may email the City Clerk at email@example.com by 4:30 p.m. the day of the meeting (please include name, address and subject in email). In addition, sign-up sheets for each public input item will be available near the entrance of the Council Chambers at 4:30 p.m. the day of each meeting and collected by the City Clerk 5 minutes prior to the start of the meeting. Names will be called to approach the podium to address the Council. Those watching from overflow areas can enter the Chambers to speak when their name is called and then proceed back to the overflow area to continue viewing.
Viewers may also choose to call in via telephone to speak during public input items. A number will appear on screen during live broadcasts and streams when lines open for call-in speakers.
