City Council Meetings


City Council Meetings

The City Council meets the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, at 6:30 p.m., at the Douglas County Library, 360 Village Square Lane, Event Hall. Study Session begins at 5:30 pm. Study Session meetings differ in several ways from the regular Council meetings. While Council may give direction to City staff, they will not cast any votes during Study Session and there is no public comment during Study Session. City Council meetings begin at 6:30 pm. The public is encouraged to attend and participate in these meetings. Anyone who wants to address the Council may do so during the public comment period.  Public comment is limited to three minutes per person.

Virtual Governing

As we continue to practice social distancing for your health, the safety of this community and our staff, City Council meetings will be hosted virtually until further notice.  Download our Electronic Meeting Participation Policy here.

Public Comment Instructions

Written Comment

Please be mindful that written comments will not be read into the record; if you would like to provide live comment during the meeting, please see the instructions below.

Written comments must be submitted to no later than 4:30 p.m. the day before a meeting. Comments received after 4:30 p.m. the day before a meeting will NOT be distributed to City Council for the upcoming meeting.

Live Comment

If you wish to provide your public comment live during the meeting, please click the link above to register for the virtual meeting. During live public comment, one individual may speak at a time.  An immediate response to public comment should not be expected, and questions raised on items not on the night’s agenda may be redirected to staff to be answered at a later date.

If on a laptop/tablet:

Once the public comment or public hearing period is opened, please use the Chat feature in Zoom to request the opportunity to speak and verify your name and address. You will be placed in a queue and given your allotted three minutes to speak as an individual, or five minutes on behalf of a group. Please only use the Chat feature to request the chance to speak, as staff will not be answering other questions or addressing other comments through the Chat.

If calling in via phone:

After the first round of live comments have been given, the last four digits of each phone number will be recognized and given the chance to speak, one by one. Please verify your name and address before giving your comments – three minutes as an individual or five minutes on behalf of a group.

We look forward to your participation and are grateful for your understanding and patience as we navigate through new procedures.
