The City of Monterey is committed to the safe public attendance of its public meetings and seeks to continue to offer virtual methods for public participation. As public participation procedures may vary by meeting, participants should carefully review the procedures outlined on each agenda. Governor Newsom's Executive Order N-29-20 remains in effect, providing greater flexibility for agencies holding public meetings during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Effective June 15, 2021, City Council meetings will be operated in a hybrid mode, with virtual and in-person attendance options. Other public meetings will transition to hybrid mode in July 2021; please check each meeting agenda for details.
General details for public participation:
BEFORE EACH MEETING, members of the public may submit comment(s) to the email address in the instructions at the top of the agenda until ½ hour before the start of the meeting. These messages will not be read aloud during the meeting but are made available to the meeting body and public at https://monterey.org/submitted-comments. All comments received become part of the record.
DURING EACH MEETING, members of the public may attend and participate:
Online or by telephone via Zoom (see agenda for login details).
In-person, for the City Council only at this time, with protective face coverings required, and subject to capacity limits (see agenda) to allow for social distancing. When the meeting room capacity has been reached, guests must wait outside.
