To Participate in Public Comment During the Meeting:

In-Person Comments: Blue Speaker Identification Cards are located near the Council Chamber entrance. Please complete a Speaker Card and give it to the City Clerk prior to the agenda item you wish to speak on and preferably prior to the start of the Council meeting. When the Mayor opens a public comment period, the City Clerk will call speakers to provide comment in the order the Speaker Cards are received. Should you have any questions after consulting the Speaker Identification Card, please contact the City Clerk prior to the Council meeting. 

Live Remote Public Comments: Members of the public may submit a live remote public comment via Zoom video conferencing. Download the Zoom mobile app from the Apple Appstore or Google Play. If you are using a desktop computer, you can test your connection to Zoom by clicking here. Make sure that you have a working microphone, and if you want to be seen during your comments, a web camera. Zoom also allows you to join the meeting by phone.

  • Join the meeting at any point, but be sure you are in the meeting prior to the City Council consideration of the item on which you would like to provide comments.
  • From a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android, click on the Zoom meeting link that is listed and hyperlinked in the current agenda packet. Note: Each meeting will feature a different Zoom meeting link, or meeting ID.
