City Council meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month and begin at 7:00pm in Council Chambers, 409 South Main Street. All meetings are open to the public. You can also watch council meetings on the Public Education Government Channel (Channel 3) or stream video online.
In accordance with the Emergency Ordinance to effectuate temporary changes in certain deadlines and to modify public meeting and public hearing practices and procedures to address continuity of operations associated with pandemic disaster, re-adopted on February 9, 2021, the public will not be able to physically attend the City Council meetings, until further notice.
However, a phone line will be live where residents will be allowed to call in and speak with City Council during the Public Hearings and the Public Comments portion of the night’s meeting. We ask those that wish to speak during the public comment period to not call in until after all the public hearings and public comment on those have been heard. This will avoid anyone calling on any other item from holding up the que and then being asked to call back at a later time.
The telephone number to call in is: 540-437-2687
Residents also may provide comment prior to the meeting by visiting this page: www.harrisonburgva.gov/agenda-comments
