City Council study sessions are held the third Tuesday of each month in the Council Chambers. The purpose of a study session is for educational information on previously-agreed upon issues. Either the City Management or the City Council can request that specific items be put on the Study Session calendar for a more in depth discussion. Items range from specific projects, to upcoming legislation, to entire City departments giving updates. This format allows Council Members and staff to hold in-depth discussions on issues. These are open public meetings and anyone is welcome to attend. However, no public hearings or public input will be received, except by specific invitation of the Council for purposes of education on the specific issue at hand. The topics will then be forwarded to a future, regular Council meeting for action.
