we are continuing to hold City Council meetings so we can conduct essential business, but we also want to respond to health concerns that encourage social distancing. In an effort to provide remote community participation for our City Council meetings, we are piloting real-time online commenting on agenda items through YouTube Live. Our goal is for you to be able to watch and participate in the meeting from your home without needing to attend in-person.

Due to Executive Order N-29-20, we can no longer offer an in-person meeting location for the community to attend public meetings. Learn more about how to participate.
