Anyone is welcome to submit written comments to the City Council, or attend City Council meetings and participate in public hearings or speak during community comments.
Written comments are considered along with comments made at the meetings. All written or emailed comments on items for community comments or public hearings are forwarded to the Mayor and/or Council, as requested or addressed.

The public has two opportunities to address the Council during council meetings: during the designated Community Comments or Public Hearings times.
- During Community Comments, the public may speak to the Council on any issue, as long as it is not scheduled later in the agenda as a public hearing.
- During Public Hearings, the public may comment on items relevant to the topic of the hearing.
- The mayor will announce the Community Comments and Public Hearings, announce the time limit, and invite the public to speak.
- Go to the podium. Sign in with your name and address for the record. State your name (and/or group you represent, if applicable) and your address, and make your comments.
Community Comments is the time for the Mayor and City Council to listen to your comments, but it is not an open dialog. The Mayor and City Council will not answer questions during these times.
The City Clerk is responsible for ordinances, resolutions, minutes, and the City Code. The office publishes notices, ordinances, and minutes, and assists staff and the public in researching information. Learn about the City Clerk.
