Citizens are encouraged to get involved and share their opinions by commenting at the Council's Regular Meeting at 5 p.m. To provide for public input while observing social distancing, the Council is currently taking comment online and by phone. The deadline to submit comments is the day before the meeting at 5 p.m.
Citizens may also contact their City Councilor directly at any time. Find contact information here:
Interested citizens can submit comments on posted Regular Council 5 p.m. agenda items by filling out the form below. You will need to state which agenda item you are commenting on. If commenting on more than one item, please fill out and submit separate forms for each agenda item. Find agendas here. Typically, these are posted online 48 hours before the meeting is scheduled to occur. Addenda to meetings will be posted no later than 24 hours before a meeting.
Comments are limited to five minutes total, read at a reasonable pace, for all items on the agenda. However, comments under section three, Public Hearings, are not counted as part of the total comment time for the meeting, But these Public Hearing comments are still limited to five minutes each. Each speaker is allowed the opportunity to speak once on an agenda item, meaning if an item appears on more than one regular agenda, the speaker may only comment at one of those meetings. This ensures more citizens get the opportunity to have their voice heard.
If you prefer, you may still send your comments by email to email@example.com or call and leave a message at 918-596-1976. When emailing or calling to leave a public comment, please do not include any information in your comment that you do not wish to be shared at a public meeting. If you are commenting on more than one agenda item, please send separate emails and leave separate voicemails for each agenda item. The following information must be included in your comment: 1) Your name, 2) the Agenda Item, and 3) Whether you are for or against the item.
In the case of a Public Hearing, comments will be taken in person at the meeting. Members of the public who prefer to submit comments remotely during the Public Hearing for Agenda item 3a may do so via videoconferencing and teleconferencing by joining from a computer, tablet or smartphone, using the information at the top of the agenda.
If you have any questions, please call our main line at 918-596-1990.
