  1. Can a member of the public speak at a council meeting?
    This opportunity is available through the public comment portion of the City Council meeting. Although no action can be taken on the subjects brought forth during Public Comments, if the item is something that needs to be researched or brought forth on a future agenda for discussion and/or action, the Council will direct the staff to do so. If a member of the public wants to discuss a subject, must have signed up by 12 Noon, the Wednesday before the meeting, in order to be recognized. Public Participation Resolution #35-07-05.
