Study Sessions

From time to time, City Council will meet prior to the regular meeting for a “Study Session.” Study sessions do not have to follow a formal agenda, the purpose of study session discussion is to allow Council members to be made aware of impending business and allow informal discussion of issues that might be acted on at a future regular session meeting. Study sessions are public meetings and members of the public are welcome to attend. When scheduled, Study Session will appear at the top of the agenda for an upcoming meeting on Agendas & Minutes.
