Ways to Engage in Local Government

About City Council Meetings

The City Council holds public meetings to conduct City business and gather feedback from community members. 

Work sessions give City Council the chance to work on a particular issue or topic. While Council may give direction to City staff during a work session, no votes are cast during these meetings.

Both City Council meetings and work sessions are open to the public, but only City Council meetings have open comment/public hearings.
