Citizens are welcome and encouraged to provide input to the council during the “Citizens to be Heard” portion of every City Council meeting. Citizens to be Heard are held at the beginning of each meeting. In an effort to streamline the process, speakers are asked to sign in and limit their comments to three minutes, and to refrain from repeating information presented by previous speakers.
Please note, the council is prohibited, per the Oklahoma Open Meetings Act, from commenting on issues brought up during Citizens to be Heard. However, a council member may address concerns during the “Council member remarks” portion of the meeting.
