Agenda items pulled from the Consent Calendar will be placed on the agenda at the end of the matters listed under "Action Items."

​Public Hearings: In order to schedule the timing and length of public hearings for the convenience of the Council, the general public, and interested parties, the first public hearing will begin at or before 7:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as possible.

Speakers may be asked to be sworn in by the City Clerk if they wish to submit facts rather than opinions.

What is the difference between standard agenda and the agenda packet?

The standard agenda is in the form of a Web page, with links to individual minutes, resolutions, ordinances, etc., that are converted to PDF format. This format tends to be easier to read and navigate and loads quickly on all computer systems.

The agenda packet is the more "official" version of the agenda. It is entirely in PDF format and includes scanned documents. This makes the document much larger in both page length and system memory requirements. As such it can be prohibitively slow to load on a dial-up or slower modem connection.
