City Council Meetings and Work Sessions
The City Council meets every first and third Monday of the month, unless the meeting falls on a holiday and then the meeting is usually rescheduled for that Tuesday. The Work Session Meetings are held in the Conference Room at 4:00 p.m. on the same day as the Council meeting unless otherwise stated on the Council Agendas. These can be found under the “Your Government” tab and “Council Agenda and Minutes” tab. The Council meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers.
Deadlines for Work Session and Council Meeting Agenda Items
The deadlines for the meetings are no later than 5:00 p.m. the Monday prior to the Council meeting, regardless of holidays that fall on a Monday.
If a business, civic organization or individual want to request to be placed on the agenda a City Council Agenda Request form must be filled out in its entirety and returned as soon as possible. The form is sent to the Council President and Mayor for their review prior to being placed on a Work Session Agenda. If they determine that a meeting is necessary to gain more knowledge about the subject then a staff member from the Clerk’s Office will get in touch with the person to confirm an appointment time.
Council Agenda Request Form
Q. What do I do when I get to the meeting?
A. Before the meeting starts, write (print) your name and address on the sign-up sheet located on the table in front of the Council Chamber doors. When you are recognized by the Council President, walk to the podium and state your name and address clearly for the record. Please address your remarks to the Council as a group, rather than to an individual member of the Council, City staff or audience.
Q. How can I speak to the Council at a City Council meeting?
A. If you would like to address the Council on any subject, you may do so during the regular City Council meeting or during the Work Session meeting at the time of "Visitors Comments". Comments may be made at this time. If comments are related to a public hearing, public comments are encouraged during the Public Hearings, which are separate agenda items regarding a specific issue, and are listed prior to the Council meeting being called to order.
