Answers to Agenda-related Questions
- When are City Council Meetings?
Meetings are held on the second and last Tuesdays of each month at 6pm.
- How do I get an item placed on the City Council Agenda?
Only the City Council members, City Manager, and Department Heads have the authority to place items on the City Council agenda.
- How can I address the Council concerning an agenda item?
Before the beginning of the Council meeting, complete a speaker card and return it to the City Clerk. The speaker cards are kept with the official record of the City Council meeting and are used if the City Council or staff needs to contact you at a later date.
- How do I express my concern for an item not on the agenda?
Before the beginning of the Council meeting, complete a speaker card and return it to the City Clerk. You will be allowed to speak during the Public Comment period.
Every City Council agenda provides time for a Public Comment period. This is your opportunity to address the Council on any subject matter that is within the jurisdiction of the City Council and that does not appear as a regular agenda item. The City Council is not permitted (by law) to take any action on issues raised during the Public Comment period, but it may refer matters to the staff for response or official action at a future date.
- How do I run for City Council?
City Council elections are held in November of even-numbered years and are consolidated with the Statewide General Election. The nomination period for candidates running for a City Council seat begins in mid-July and concludes in mid-August. Please contact the City Clerk at (951) 956-2925 for additional details and requirements of running for office.
