How to Testify at Council Meetings

An engaged citizenry and active advocacy community makes our government stronger. We encourage individuals and representatives of organizations to testify at public hearings and roundtables.

During the Council’s public hearings and roundtables, citizens have the opportunity to make their views known and have them incorporated into the official committee record.

All Council hearings and roundtables are placed on the calendar. Each hearing entry has a specific point of contact for each committee, to notify if you wish to testify.

For more information about testifying at a public hearing or roundtable, please contact the appropriate committee:
