Council to revisit meeting procedures

Monday, August 23, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

With emergency orders set to expire Sept. 1, the city has begun preparing for a return to “normal” meetings, but decisions about what normal looks like have yet to be made. A post from Mayor Steve Adler on the City Council Message Board notes that, with open meetings rules back in place, all speakers will appear in person once again (though Council members will still have the option of joining remotely). As of now, Adler said, the Sept. 2 meeting will have in-person public speakers who can sign up to speak in lobby kiosks by 9:45 a.m. for the morning agenda or 1:45 p.m. for the afternoon agenda on the day of the meeting. Right now, Adler said he intends to take up speakers “in batches” as has been the practice during remote meetings. However, he said Council should revisit its procedures during an upcoming work session “to see how we would like to proceed for the rest of the fall.”
