City Council Meetings

A typical City Council meeting begins with the Mayor determining that a quorum (at least 3 members) is present. The Mayor then calls the meeting to order. Following an invocation and the Pledges of Allegiance, City Council begins the official business of the meeting. Proclamations, Staff Recognition, and Public Comments are addressed first. Next, the Council considers the Consent Agenda. Consent agenda items include routine, non-controversial items such as the approval of meeting minutes or the purchase of equipment and supplies already budgeted. Following the Consent Agenda, required Public Hearings are held, and individual Business Agenda items are considered. The Council may, or may not, convene into Executive Session (closed meeting) if necessary prior to adjourning the meeting.
