Pursuant to Governor Newsom's Executive Orders N-29-20 and N-33-20, and to do all we can to help slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus):
Meetings of the Monterey City Council and its Boards and Commissions will be conducted with virtual (electronic) participation only. Members of the public may watch the live stream of the City Council and Boards and Commission meetings at https://monterey.org/tv or on television on Channel 25.
Members of the public may participate before and during each meeting by submitting comment(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org from an email account or a cell phone's texting app. The clerk will read each received public comment aloud into the record at the designated time, subject to time limits that may be imposed pursuant to the Brown Act. In the subject line of a public comment email, please specify the meeting body and date and indicate the relevant item number or "general" to help staff easily receive and organize public comments. Example subject lines:
Public comment for Planning Comm. mtg. 3/24 - General
Public comment for Council mtg. 3/25 - Item 1
The frequency and length of public meetings will be minimized. Non-urgent and non-essential City business with expected public feedback will be postponed.
