Attending a Town Council Meeting/Study Session
REGULAR COUNCIL MEETINGS are held the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 7:00 p.m.
STUDY SESSION MEETINGS are held the second and fourth Mondays of each month prior to the regular Council Meeting, as the Council deems necessary.
COUNCIL MEETINGS are held at the Eatonville Community Center, located at 301 Center Street West. Council meetings falling on a holiday Monday are canceled and usually scheduled for the Tuesday following the holiday. Subjects for Council consideration are listed on the Council agenda. Council meetings are open to the public and citizens are welcome to attend. Citizens’ comments are received at regular council meetings and during public hearings. The Town Council agenda is available from Town Hall late Friday afternoon until the Monday Council Meeting. The agenda will also be available at the public library. Agendas are subject to change.
CITIZEN COMMENTS: If you wish to make comments at a Regular Council Meeting, please sign up to speak on the provided sheet. When it is time for you to speak, walk to the front of the room and give your name and address for the record, then state your views. Speak loudly and clearly so that your remarks will be audible on the recorder.
This is NOT a discussion period. However, the Council will try to answer questions and will follow up individually to provide more information if requested. In order to allow time for everyone to speak, individuals are asked to limit their comments to three minutes and groups to five minutes.
Public Hearings are held for the purpose of receiving citizens’ comments on a specific topic or issue. Citizens’ Comments on other issues or topics may be presented to the Town Council under Citizens’ Comments. If you feel strongly about a public issue or a local concern, the Council urges you to share your information and thoughts with them at these times.
In all cases where citizens are making comments, whether during the citizens’ comment period, at a public hearing, or on an informal basis at a study session, citizens are asked to address issues and not individual council members or staff. Persons who make personal, impertinent, or slanderous remarks, or who become boisterous, threatening or personally abusive while addressing the Council may be asked to leave the meeting.
Thank you for your participation and for your interest in our community!
