City Council Meetings under Gubernatorial Proclamation 20-28
On March 24, 2020, the Governor issued Proclamation 20-28 (Open Public Meetings Act and Public Records Act) to, among other things, temporarily prohibit in-person public attendance at meetings subject to the OPMA. To ensure that the public has the necessary means to continue their critical oversight role of Edmonds City Council meetings, the City will continue to live-stream its Council meetings. These additional measures will be in place during the period in which in-person attendance is not allowed under the Governor’s order.

City Council Announces Plan to Resume Live Public Comment at Council Meetings via Zoom

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Jay Inslee’s stay at home order in March, Edmonds City Council meetings moved online using Zoom to keep the public and council safe. After weeks of virtual meetings without live public input, the council is reintroducing live public comment to the weekly meeting agenda beginning June 16th to ensure that more voices are heard.

“Public participation is important to our democratic process, but due to current meeting restrictions and concern over the well-being of the community, it is still not feasible to have these meetings in council chambers with people speaking at the podium,” said Council President Adrienne Fraley-Monillas. “We are providing a safe alternative by inviting live participation through Zoom.”

Instructions for participating in Zoom public comment using a computer or a telephone will be provided on the council webpage and council agenda.
