Community Question Corner: City council meetings

I can’t attend Council meetings; how can I learn what they’re doing or provide comments?

It can be difficult to make it to Council meetings: work, children, extra-curricular activities – many simply can’t make it to City Hall every other Tuesday at 6:00 pm.  Yet the Council makes decisions during these meetings on a plethora of issues that profoundly affect your community: taxation, zoning, recreation, fees, ordinances, roads and others.

There are other ways to discover what is happening:

  • Syracuse City’s YouTube channel.  We began broadcasting Council meetings on YouTube in February.  Links to the stream are on our webpage:
  • Agendas and packets.  Agendas are posted on our website and the Utah public notice website.  Packets include information about items scheduled for discussion.  We post physical copies of agendas at City Hall.
  • Review minutes.  The Council’s minutes are published online after their approval by the Council.
  • Notify me.  Receive notification of meetings and agendas, sign up through our webpage.

If you can’t make a meeting, e-mail or deliver a letter to the City Recorder at least 24 hours before the meeting, and your comments will be presented to the Council during the meeting.
