City Council Meeting
May 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Electors vote for seven Council Members “at large” meaning that Council Members represent the entire City, not a particular district. According to Chapter IV of the City Charter, “through the departments and agencies of the City government, the Council shall provide for the public peace and health and for the safety of persons and property.
People often come to Council meetings expecting to present their particular problem and get an immediate answer. Many of these problems could be solved much faster if they had been taken up directly with the City Manager.
The City Council welcomes and encourages citizens to speak during the Public Comment or Public Hearing Portion of the Council Agenda. However, Council policy is to hear the public comment, not to act on the public comment at that time. Concerns brought before the Council during the Public Comment portion of the agenda will be referred to the City Manager for action. If, after communicating with the City Manager, no resolution is reached, the concern will be elevated to the Mayor and then eventually to Council for action.
Those citizens wishing to speak on agenda and non-agenda items will be allowed a maximum of four minutes each to address their concerns. This is the only time during the Council meeting that citizens are allowed to address the Council.
Agenda’s are available online one week prior to the scheduled meeting. You may find the agenda online at http://cityofcedarsprings.org/meetings/meetings-minutes-library/
This meeting may be cancelled if there is no business to discuss. Public notice will be provided if the meeting is cancelled at www.cityofcedarsprings.org and on the City Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/OfficialCityofCedarSprings/
