Participating in Council Meetings

City Council has restarted its 6 p.m. legislative sessions on Mondays with the availability for the public to provide testimony remotely. Here's how it works:

  • On the day of the meeting, citizens can sign up online to give testimony between 5 and 6 p.m. You must sign up in order to be called on to testify.
  • At 6 p.m., citizens signed up to testify will call into the meeting. The call-in information will be available when signing up on the form above and listed on the Current Agenda for each meeting, found on the City's web site.
  • The Council President will call on citizens to provide testimony. When a citizen's name is called, the individual will hit *3 on their phone to ask to be unmuted. The system will identify when a person has been unmuted.
  • The citizen then can provide comments. At the end of the testimony, the citizen will hit *3 again to go back on mute.

Members of the public also can contact Council Members with comments on upcoming legislation by filling out this contact form.

Council Members, staff and presenters are attending these meetings remotely. Members of the public who don’t plan to testify can tune in to the meetings on CityCable 5 (on channel 5 or 325 on the Comcast cable system) or online.

Web or TV viewing is preferred, but a call in option is also available for those who do not have access via the web or Channel 5. Call-in information for the 6 p.m. meeting is available on the Current Agenda for that meeting on the City's web site.

The Council also is continuing its committee meetings, briefing sessions, and study sessions. All meetings can be viewed on CityCable 5 or online. Citizens also may call into the meetings:

  • Monday, 3:30 p.m. Briefing Sessions: +1(408) 418-9388; access code 966 942 097
