The meeting will begin with a call to order once 4/7 council members (quorum) are present. Council begins with an Invocation and the Pledge of Allegiance. The meeting then moves into citizen comments and Proclamations. Council will then act on the consent agenda. These are usually non-controversial or housekeeping items that can be approved without discussion and in a group. Council next considers regular agenda items individually. These items may be related to resolutions (non-legislative matters) or ordinances. Council takes action on an item when a member makes a motion, has it seconded, and approved by the majority. After the regular agenda, council can allow for more citizen comments and then has the opportunity to make comments themselves before ending the meeting.
