Elk Grove City Council meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of every month.  They are scheduled to begin at 6:00 and actually begin between 6:00 and 6:45.  They are held in the Council Chambers located at 8400 Laguna Palms Way across the street from City Hall.

Members of the audience can speak on any item on the agenda or on items not on the agenda. 

During the quarantine the Council Chambers are closed to the public during Council meetings.  The agenda describes the ways available for making public comments.  You can send in your comments in print or an mp3 audio file or you can email the City Clerk to call you during the meeting so that you can speak.  The best way it to make an audio file of your public comments, up to 3 minutes long, and send it to the City Clerk, whose email address follows. 

Ordinarily, when there is no virus, you can fill out a blue speaker card on the table at the back of the room and give it to the Assistant City Clerk, who sits at the front left of the room facing the audience.  

City Council meeting agendas are available on the City’s website.  You can also subscribe to be notified of new agendas, hearings, etc.
