There are a number of ways to learn about City Council actions and ways to contact Council Members.
The City's website offers a number of subscriptions. You can opt in to receive text messages or emails when updates are made or new documents released. The options for City Council-related subscriptions are:
Meeting Calendar and Agendas:Subscribe at this link to be notified when a City Council meeting is cancelled, rescheduled, or changed in some way (time or venue). You will also be notified when an agenda is posted.
E-mails will be presented during the “Receipt of Public Comments” agenda item.
Public Hearing Comments
When the Mayor requests comments on specific public hearing items, send your e-mail about the public hearing item being heard to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mayor will ask you to e-mail your comment when the public hearing item is introduced and will later announce when the time for comment on the item has ended (generally after staff has made their presentation about the item to City Council).
E-mails will be presented during the public hearing for the agenda item.
Work Sessions: Work sessions are always open to the public. While there is no opportunity for public comment, this is where the Council holds detailed discussions about items they will be voting on at regular meetings. Work sessions are held the first and third Mondays of every month. Videos of work sessions are typically available within a few days of the meeting.
