[ARCHIVED] How to Provide Public Comment

Interior of Concord council chamber

Looking to provide a public comment at an upcoming City Council meeting? We know there has been some confusion about how to do this since public meetings went "virtual" in the era of COVID-19. Please check out the updated instructions on our Public Meetings web page.

Staff Reads Your Comments Aloud: 

When the Mayor opens the public comment period for the relevant agenda item, please email your comments to cityclerk@cityofconcord.org. If you want your comment read aloud, prominently write “Read Aloud at Meeting” at the top of the email and your comments will be read into the record (not to exceed three minutes at staff’s cadence). Comments received outside of the public comment period for the relevant item will not be read aloud but will be inserted into the meeting record.


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: https://cityofconcord.zoom.us/j/97791489084
Webinar ID: 977 9148 9084
By phone: US: +1 669 900 6833

Speakers will be asked to provide their name and city of residence, although providing this is not required for participation.
Each speaker will be afforded up to 3 minutes to speak.
Speakers will be muted until their opportunity to provide public comment.
When the Mayor opens a public comment period on the item on which you would like to comment, please use the “raise hand” feature (or press *9 if connecting via telephone) which will alert staff that you have a comment to provide.
