Meetings & Minutes
The Council meets at City Hall on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month, unless otherwise scheduled. A Work Session meeting begins at 6:00 p.m., followed by the Regular Meeting at 6:30 p.m. All meetings are public with the exception of those held in Executive Session. Topics discussed during such sessions are limited by State statute.
During the Work Session, the Mayor, City Council, City Attorney, and a host of City leaders representing the Finance Department, Building Inspections, Parks & Recreation Department, Street Department, Fire Department, Police Department, Economic Development, etc…, all discuss what’s going on in each department, what equipment or personnel changes may be needed, budget needs, infrastructure changes and more. Department heads give updates. The Work Session is not a time for public input, but you get a great sense of how our City is being taken care of by these hard working employees.
During the Council Meetings, the City Council Members actually vote on important matters for our city. The Mayor, as Head of the Council, reads aloud the matter before the Council. They have an opportunity to ask questions, make opinions, ask the attorney for clarifications, and discuss the details of what is being considered. The Mayor then asks for a vote to say yes or no to the proposal. Each member then places his or her vote. In many matters, not all, the Mayor asks for public input. If you have an important point to bring up about the matter being voted on, you are allowed to stand up and briefly talk to the Council.
