How to participate in Council Meetings

Citizen Comments

  • As effected by Engrossed Substitute House Bill 1329 (ESHB 1329.SL), Public agencies are encouraged to provide for the increased ability of the public to observe and participate in the meetings of governing bodies through real-time telephonic, electronic, internet, or other readily available means of remote access that do not require an additional cost to access the meeting.  City Council Meetings will be held in a hybrid format that allows for in-person, online, and telephonic attendance.  Please see the agenda page for meeting access information.
  • As noted in the agenda, comments can be made in-person or virtually via Zoom. Please state your name and limit your comments to 3 minutes, unless additional time is granted by Council. As a rule, the Council will not respond to citizen comments.
  • The meeting can be watched live on BKAT and on the City’s website live stream.

Citizen Comment periods are held during regular city council meetings. These periods allow for the public to address the Council on subjects not scheduled for public hearing. Comments during these portions of the meeting are limited to 3 minutes.

If you have written comments, please submit them to the City Clerk for copying and distribution to the Council.

Public Hearings
A public hearing allows the public to provide input/testimony to the Council on a specific subject. If you wish to speak during a public hearing, please sign the appropriate sign in sheet at the entrance to the Council Chambers. Comments during a public hearing are limited to 5 minutes.
