1. Roll Call (The city clerk will call the roll of councilmembers to take attendance.)
2. Agenda Summation (The council president will summarize what is on the agenda.)

This is the first of two chances for public commentary on items not on the agenda. The 20-minute time limit for each part of Section 4 applies to this section, too. Speakers at the public mic are normally allowed five minutes. That time can be reduced by the chair of the meeting if a lot of people want to speak. For people present in council chambers, they will be invited to approach the public mic and sign in. For people attending via the Zoom connection, they’ll be asked to use the “raise hand” feature on Zoom, and they will be unmuted by staff when it’s their turn to speak.
