The public now has the ability to participate during General Citizen’s Communications during regularly-scheduled City Council meetings via videoconferencing. Time is set aside at 12 noon at each council meeting for a maximum of 10 individuals to address the council on topics of their choice. For those unable to travel to City Hall, videoconferencing for Remote Citizen Communication is available at one Library in each of the City Council districts, except in the district 9 where City Hall is located.
