City Council Meetings Transition to Virtual Offering Opportunities for the Public to Participate Remotely During the Coronavirus Pandemic
To further support and reinforce Alameda County’s Shelter-in-Place order, City Council meetings, beginning with the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, April 14, will now take place virtually with the Mayor and City Council and City staff teleconferencing into the meeting.
An executive order signed by California Governor Gavin Newsom back in March now allows the Mayor and City Council to participate in their City Council meetings without being physically present (via teleconference). We are excited for this opportunity to be able to hold our regularly scheduled City Council meetings and welcome public participation in the meetings while everyone stays safe in their homes.
City Commission meetings are still currently postponed.

Public Comment via Teleconference
During the meeting, you can use the "raise your hand" button to request to speak during public comment periods only, to which the Mayor will facilitate as she runs through the agenda. A staff moderator will monitor requests to speak during public comment periods. Upon raising your hand through the teleconferencing application, the staff moderator will select the speaker and unmute their microphone allowing them the opportunity to speak. Consistent with typical standards, speakers will be given a three minute window to provide their public comment. At the end of the three minute period, the speaker’s microphone will be muted again.
Provide Public Comment via Email (accepted until the start of the meeting, unless otherwise noted on the meeting agenda)
To provide written comment on an agenda item, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your comments must be limited to 350 words in order to be taken into record. Your written comments will be read into the record by the City Clerk during the appropriate public comment period. Please include your name and note the agenda item in the contents of your email.
