Speaking at Council Meetings

You may choose to speak to Council either virtually by joining the Zoom webinar, or in person in the Council Chamber at City Hall. The public is encouraged to participate virtually, as seating is limited in the Council Chamber.

Members of the public can sign up to speak at Council meetings on nights when a Public Hearing is not being held. All requests must be received by 12:00 pm on the day of the meeting.

The online sign-up form opens six days before the scheduled meeting. See the schedule below.
