How do I address the Council at a meeting?

Members of the public who wish to address the City Council regarding an agenda item during a meeting are asked to fill out a blue Speaker's Card, available in the foyer of the Chambers. Submit the Speaker's Card to the City Clerk who will notify the Mayor. Once called by the Mayor, step to the speaker's podium. The Mayor will ask all speakers to state their name and address and then they are free to address the Mayor and Council members with any comments or questions about the specific agenda item.

For written communications to the Council, a request to be on the agenda must be submitted in writing to the City Clerk no later than 5 p.m. on the Wednesday prior to the Council meeting of concern. The request should include the following: 

  1. Date of the meeting you would like your item to appear on the agenda
  2. A brief description of your item
  3. Any back-up information you would like the Council to receive prior to the meeting 
  4. Contact information to be used by the City Clerk to confirm your request
