CITY COUNCIL MEETING AGENDA

September 11, 2017 - 5:30 PM

City Hall Council Chambers

The Moorhead City Council welcomes and encourages public input on issues listed on the agenda or of general community interest, time and Council permitting. Speakers are limited to 3-minute presentations. Advertised public hearings are scheduled so that the public is afforded an opportunity to speak. Public hearings are generally scheduled 15 to 30 minutes after the start of the meeting; however the starting time may vary depending on other scheduled agenda items. Citizens wishing to address the Mayor and Council regarding a specific agenda item, other than public hearings, will be afforded an opportunity during the discussion of that item. Citizens wishing to speak on matters not listed on the agenda will be afforded the opportunity to do so under the heading “Citizens Addressing the Council,” usually scheduled at the beginning and end of the agenda. Each person requesting the opportunity to speak is asked to fill out a “Request to Speak Form.”
