City Council

The Edmonds City Council (all Council positions are at large positions) meets as a body of the whole on four Tuesdays a month starting at 7:00 p.m.  located in the Public Safety Complex located at 250 5th Avenue North, Edmonds.   Audience participation is welcomed during the "Audience Comments" portion of the meeting.  Audience comments are limited to  three minutes per person.  Comments regarding any public hearing or "closed-record review" scheduled on the agenda are not taken during the Audience Comments portion of the meeting.

CHANGE IN COUNCIL MEETING FORMAT REGARDING COMMITTEE MEETINGS: During the September 2, 2014 Council Meeting, the Council voted to change the format of how Council meetings would be conducted. They voted to remove all Committee Meetings and hold full Council Meetings four Tuesdays a month. Two of the meetings would be study sessions and two would be business sessions. The dates on which work sessions and business sessions will be held are the second and fourth Tuesday. This change will take place starting in October 2014

Public Hearings will be scheduled as necessary.   The public may sign up to speak during the "public hearing portion" of the Council meeting.

Special Council Meetings:  A Special City Council Meeting is a meeting that begins at a different time than 7:00 p.m. or on a different day (other than the regular Tuesday meetings.)  A "Special Meeting Notice" is issued for those meetings.

The full Council Meeting begins with a Call to Order and the Flag Salute.  Next on the agenda is the approval of the Agenda followed by approval of the Consent Agenda.  Following approval of the Agenda and the Consent Agenda, the Council begins to discuss the numbered items on the agenda. Audience Comments are included in these numbered items. During this portion of the Council Meeting, the Council can discuss an item, take action, or place on a future agenda.
