City staff just recently started a new series of posts on the website aimed at helping inform the public about what is happening at upcoming council meetings and work sessions. Meeting packets can be hundreds of pages long. That is a lot for most citizens to look through!
Staff members prepare cover memos for most agenda items in the meeting packet. With some minor modification, those cover memos can also serve as an article or website post that make it easier for the public to become informed about the decisions council will consider. The cover memos provide background information on the topic, summarize what is being requested of the council and may include a staff recommendation.
Not all meeting or work session topics will be addressed in a separate post. Staff is endeavoring to cover those believed to be of broad community interest. They will not always be able to accurately predict what is of interest to citizens, and some important matters may be on the agenda but not featured in a separate post simply due to time constraints. Therefore, citizens are still encouraged to read the meeting agenda for a list of topics to be discussed and refer to information in the full meeting packet.
The Salida City Council meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 448 E 1st Street. The meeting on the first Tuesday begins at 7:00pm and is preceded by a work session at 6:00pm. The meeting on the third Tuesday begins at 6:00, with a work session the day before at 6:00pm. Meetings are broadcast on local cable channel 10 and available for replay on YouTube, which can be accessed from the city website.
