How can I speak at a City Council meeting?

People who would like to address the City Council can do so during the Public Comment portion of the agenda near the beginning of the meeting. This portion of the meeting provides the public with an opportunity to speak on any item or matters within the Council’s jurisdiction that are not on the agenda.

A member of the public or councilmember can pull an item from the consent calendar to allow for public comment on that item. The Mayor will separately call for testimony at the time of each consideration item or public hearing.

The City uses speaker cards that should be submitted to the City Clerk. (Please note: speaker cards are not required; everyone will have an opportunity to address the Council).

The time limit established for public comments is three minutes per speaker, unless a different limit is announced.
