Council Meetings


Council meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 5:00 p.m. Meetings are open to the public. If you are interested in attending the meeting and discussing an issue of concern please be aware that we follow a public comment policy. At each meeting, we include a general public comment period of at least ten minutes at the beginning of the meeting. During this session, testimony is allowed on any matter relevant to the Council’s mission. The facilitator shall determine relevance. The time limit for comments is three minutes, which can be reduced at the discretion of the facilitator. The facilitator also may allow public comment or questions on specific agenda items as they are addressed, with a three-minute time limit. The facilitator has the discretion to end public testimony if needed to make sure the Council completes its business.

Before members of the public may provide comments, first they must be recognized by the facilitator. Individuals should raise their hands to be recognized and provide their names and the organizations they represent if any. The Council will require speakers to fill out a public comment card identifying themselves and the topic they wish to address.
