As you know, there are a number of meetings and gatherings being postponed or cancelled due to the Coronavirus. At this point, we are continuing to hold City Council meetings so we can conduct essential business. However, there are many ways for you to watch and participate without attending the meeting. All of our meetings are streamed live and are also played back on your government channel of your cable provider. For those of you who are limiting your attendance to public gatherings, we want to remind you that you can always submit written comments on an agenda item prior to the meeting. If you would like to support, oppose, or otherwise comment on a City Council agenda item, please consider sending in your comment rather than attending the meeting in person. All communication, whether it is a formal letter or a one-line informal email, is read by the City Council. Also, if you are part of a large group that would like to comment on an agenda item, please consider commenting in writing or sending one spokesperson to speak on behalf of the group. This will be as impactful to the City Council as having a large group in attendance.
In addition, for the first time ever, we will pilot an effort to stream the City Council meeting live on YouTube and you will have the ability to comment online in real-time. Instructions will be provided on the description of the live feed. Learn more.
