Mechanics of City Government Procedure


Here are the rules and guidelines for how city council operates.


The Consent Agenda consists of items that the council has previously considered in a work session. All items on the Consent Agenda may be approved by a single vote of the council. Items may be removed from the Consent Agenda by a council member or a member of the public. Those items will be considered separately at the end of the meeting.
