The City Council typically meets three Tuesdays a month. Council meetings are comprised of a work session, where the Council discusses City business, and a formal meeting, where the Council takes action and listens to comments from the public. Both work sessions and formal meetings are open to the public. Typically, the second Tuesday of the month is reserved for a work session only.
All meetings are held at the City & Council Building, 451 South State Street, Salt Lake City, Utah. Work sessions are held in Room 326, and formal meetings are in Room 315. Persons with disabilities may call the Council Office at 801-535-7600 or TDD 801-535-6021 to make requests for reasonable meeting accommodations, including interpreters, auxiliary aids, large type agendas and #2 Braille agendas, among others.
How to Address the Council at a Meeting
The public can address the Council about any matter they wish during the public comment section of a meeting. The Council also holds public hearings, where the public is invited to speak about a specific topic the Council is currently considering. Both the public comment section and public hearings are scheduled during the formal meeting and are listed on the agenda.
To speak during either, you’ll be asked to fill out a comment card. Your name will be called when it’s your turn to speak and you’ll have two minutes to share your thoughts.
