The Mayor and City Council encourage citizen input. Time is reserved during each regular meeting for the public to address the City Council on any matter. In addition, the Mayor generally allows public input on any item listed on the agenda, prior to the Council making a decision on that item. 

Anyone wanting to speak at a meeting should fill out a speaker card, found at the information table near the entrance.

Consent Calendar: Matters considered routine and are acted upon in one motion. This section of the agenda does not require the discussion of individual items unless requested by a member of the Council or the public.

Meeting Open to the Public: Time when anyone in the audience can address the Council about matters that are not on the agenda. Speakers are limited to three minutes and should submit a speaker card to the City Clerk. Because it is not legal for the Council to discuss matters not on the agenda, any issue brought up under this section of the agenda will typically be referred to staff and may return to the Council as a regular item on a future agenda. 

Public Hearings: Those who wish to speak on matters set for public hearing will be heard when the Mayor calls for comments from the audience in support of or opposition to an issue. After all interested parties have spoken, the hearing will be closed and the matter will be discussed and acted upon by the Council.

Matters Initiated by Council: Issues related to Council projects or priorities are handled in this section of the agenda. Typically, items appearing in this section are reviewed and discussed by the Council, followed by appropriate action.

Workshops are public meetings where the City Council can conduct informal and in-depth discussion on specific issues without issuing official action.
The Council may have a ‘closed door’ meeting, allowed by State law, to discuss legal matters and certain matters related to labor and real estate transactions.
At least three Council members must be present in order to conduct a City Council meeting.
The Council adopts resolutions to approve a policy or direct certain action. Only one reading is required and it can be changed with a subsequent resolution.
An ordinance is a local law adopted by legislative action of the City Council. It requires two readings at separate Council meetings and becomes effective 30 days after the Council approves the second reading.
Motions are the vehicles for decision-making by a body and are subject to discussion and debate.
