Speaking at a Council Meeting

At the beginning of each City Council Meeting, the City Council holds a “public comment” session in which anyone can address the City Council for five (5) minutes.  You may fill out a Public Comment Card and submit it to the City Clerk.  The Mayor will call your name to speak.  


When addressing the City Council, please step forward to the podium and:

  • Speak directly into the microphone
  • State your name clearly for the record
  • State your city of residence
