City Council Meetings are held every first and third Monday in City Hall Chambers beginning at 7:00 PM. All are welcome to attend the meetings. A period for public comment on non-agenda items will be given at the beginning of each meeting. If you have an item that you feel requires City Council action or deliberation, please ask the City Clerk to put the item on the agenda (agenda items are subject to Mayor approval). No pre-meeting request is required to speak during the period for public comment on non-agenda items, however you may be asked to limit your comments to five minutes (or less if there are a large number of comments on the same subject), and please note the Brown Act prohibits the Council from deliberating or taking action on non-agenda items.
