City Council Meetings
City Council meetings are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.
City Council meetings follow a very formal and specific format. During a regular City Council meeting, Councilors make a formal vote on items that were discussed at a previous Study Session, adopt previous meeting minutes and present proclamations and resolutions. During regular City Council meetings, members of the public have an opportunity during the 'Oral Requests' portion of the agenda to make a comment to the Council on any topic.
Regular Study Sessions are held on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month.
During Study Sessions, City Councilors are able to discuss topics, receive briefings, reports and memorandums from City staff, as well as hear presentations from City staff and outside organizations. During a Study Session, no formal decisions can be made by the Council. The Council follows Robert's Rules of Order during their meetings to allow for courtesy and orderly flow of the meetings. During Study Sessions, there is not an opportunity for public comments.
Public Hearings may be held during regular City Council meetings and allows the public to attend and make a comment regarding the specific topic of the public hearing.
