The City Council also holds public work sessions at 5:30 p.m. on meeting days as well as most Wednesdays at noon. During work sessions, City staff present on a topic that councilors then discuss.
Public hearings – an opportunity for the community to speak about a specific issue prior to the Council taking any legal action – typically occur on the third Monday of each month at 7:30 pm. Members of the public who sign up to speak must speak only on the topic that is the subject of the hearing. See our Public Webcasts and Meeting and Materials web page for information on how to provide testimony. Proposed ordinances are posted online in advance of the public hearings.
City Council meetings are currently taking place virtually. See our Public Webcasts and Meeting Materials web page for information about how to join the meeting live, participate in public hearings and public forums, and how to watch previous meetings.
