Please see the City Clerk to make your request to speak. When addressing the City Council, state your name for the official record. If presenting handout materials for the City Council, please provide eight copies to the City Clerk before speaking. Your materials will become public record.
You may address the City Council on matters NOT listed on the agenda during “Public Comments.” You will be allotted up to three (3) minutes to speak on any item in the City’s subject matter jurisdiction that is not already scheduled for discussion. Under the Ralph M. Brown Act, the City Council cannot act on items raised during public comment but may respond briefly to statements made or questions posed, request clarification, or refer the item to staff.
If you wish to address the Council on an item that is listed on the agenda, please make your request to speak before the Mayor announces the public comment item. You will be allotted up to three (3) minutes to speak, and your remarks should be limited to the discussion of that specific agenda item.
