Members of the public wishing to address matters not listed on the posted agenda may do so at Presentation of Citizens. Speakers are allotted two (2) minutes each and may not cede or pool time. Members of the public requiring the assistance of a translator will be given twice the amount of time as a member of the public who does not require the assistance of a translator to address the City Council. Speakers are encouraged to sign in to speak, but it is not required. By law no action shall be taken during Presentation of Citizens.

A member of the City Council, City Staff, or public may request any item listed be considered separately. Items requested may be removed prior to the City Council voting on the Consent Agenda as a collective, singular item.
