Welcome to the May 26 – Asheville City Council Virtual Meeting Hub! While we are Staying Safer at Home, City Council wants you to still have the opportunity to participate in the decisions of your government.  There are 3 options for providing public comment.

Voicemail

All voicemail public comment must be received by 5 p.m. Monday, May 25, by calling our Toll Free Public Input Line at 855-925-2801 Meeting Code: 8914. Before commenting, please state your name, City of residence and the item you are commenting on (Examples: Consent Agenda Item A, Public Hearing Item B, Open Public Comment).

 Calls will be played during the Council meeting in the order received and alternated with Live Call In comments for up to an hour for each agenda item. All comments will be limited to 3 minutes per person per item.  Additionally, all comments must conform to City Council rules of decorum.  Those comments that do not may be excluded. 

 Live Call In

Public comment will also be taken from a live speaker queue. For this option, community members should listen to the meeting by phone by calling 855-925-2801 Meeting Code: 8914. Your phone will be muted and you will hear the meeting live. At this point callers will hear, “for more options please press *.” Pressing * will allow callers to continue to listen live, leave a comment as a message or join a speaker queue. Callers should only join the speaker queue during the time the agenda item on which they would like to speak is being discussed.

 Calls will be played during the Council meeting in the order received and alternated with voicemails left prior to the meeting for up to an hour for each agenda item. All comments will be limited to 3 minutes per person per item.  Additionally, all comments must conform to City Council rules of decorum.  Those comments that do not may be muted.
