The “PUBLIC COMMENT” item posted on the agenda is reserved for members of the public who would like to address the City Council regarding posted agenda items or non-agenda items. Individuals requesting to speak or address the City Council during the meeting shall do so under the “PUBLIC COMMENT” agenda item. Speakers shall be required to fill out a “PUBLIC COMMENT FORM” and present it, along with any material, handouts, or information for Council, to the City Secretary prior to commencement of the Council meeting. As of May 1, 2022, all such public comments will be done IN PERSON. You may email public comments and they will be distributed to each of the Council Members but not read out loud.
Speaker comments are limited to three (3) minutes. No formal action can be taken by the City Council on items not posted on the agenda. Items requiring a PUBLIC HEARING will allow a member of the public an opportunity to speak during the Public Hearing and does not require a “PUBLIC COMMENT FORM”.
Speakers must address their comments to the Mayor or Presiding Officer rather than to an individual Council Member or Staff Member. All speakers must limit their comments to the specific subject matter noted on the “PUBLIC COMMENT FORM” and refrain from any personal attacks or derogatory comments directed at any Council Member, Staff Member, other individual, or group.
