COMMON COUNCIL MEETING: EXPLANATORY NOTE REGARDING COMMENTS
When invited to speak, please come to the lectern, clearly state your name and address, spell your last name, and speak into the podium microphone so that your comments can be understood by all and properly recorded. Whenever an audience or Council member reads from a prepared statement, please give or email a copy to the City Clerk’s Office at rlicatese@cityofsummit.org. To help facilitate an orderly meeting and to permit all to be heard, speakers are asked to limit their comments to approximately 3 minutes or so in length.

ADMINISTRATIVE COMMITTEE HYBRID MEETING FINDINGS

After the return to in-person Common Council meetings earlier this summer, a small group of residents asked Council to consider holding hybrid meetings (allowing public participation both in-person and by remote video conference). As part of the deliberation process, the Administrative Committee has conducted extensive discussions and consultations to determine the viability and legality of hybrid meetings.
