All meetings of the City Council and its related public bodies are governed by the Brown Act. This means that, with only limited exceptions, all deliberations and actions must be conducted openly. The Act also provides for notice, with an Agenda, to be posted 72 hours in advance of each meeting.

HOW A CITIZEN MAY BE HEARD
Citizens are encouraged to attend any meetings and are welcome to appear before the Council/Commission(s). While it would be helpful if you schedule your appearance with the City Clerk or City Manager’s Office in advance, it is not a requirement. Copies of the agenda for all meetings are available online. Agendas are also available at the City Clerk’s Office and at the meeting location on the meeting day. Any citizen may also contact the staff for information or assistance related to any agenda item.
Individuals wishing to be heard on a particular agenda item will be recognized by the Mayor/Chairman during the consideration of that item. When recognized, please step forward to the podium and give your name and address. Speak directly into the microphone so that your comments may be heard.
If you wish to address the Council/Commission(s) on matters not shown on the Agenda, you may do so under “Communications From The Public.” Since many people may wish to have the opportunity to speak, please limit your comments to five minutes.
