How is an item listed on the City Council meeting agenda?
If you have an issue of concern for the City, you are encouraged to contact the Office of the Mayor and City Council or the City Manager . Frequently, a member of City staff will be able to readily address your concern. Occasionally, a matter requires the consideration and action of the City Council. If so, the item and supporting information that will enable the Council to make an informed decision will be scheduled for an upcoming City Council meeting.
What's the difference between a public hearing item and a non-public hearing item?
In general, a public hearing is an open consideration within a regular meeting of the City Council for which special notice has been given. Public hearings may be required by State or local law. For instance, public hearings are required for zoning changes, some annexations, and matters of housing law, etc. During the "Public Hearings" portion of the meeting, any resident or concerned individual is invited to present protests or offer support for the subject under consideration.
