Public comment may be received with regard to those matters printed on the agenda for the next meeting scheduled to occur in the list above.

See the agenda for details at https://phila.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx. Speakers interested in participating in public comment must call 215-686-3406 by 5 p.m. on the Wednesday before that Council session and submit the following information:

  • Full name

  • Callback telephone number where you can be reached

  • Identify the bill number or resolution number that will be addressed

  • State whether your comments are for, or against, that particular bill or resolution.

Speakers who submitted the above information within the required time frame will be telephoned during the council session and invited to the remote meeting. They will have up to three minutes to speak; the Council President, however, reserves the right based on circumstances to establish a different time limit. The Council President may also limit repetitious comments or limit the scope of testimony to only certain items on the agenda, which could affect callbacks for public comment at the meeting.

After the emergency declaration has ended, the location of the meetings listed above that are yet to be held will be Room 400, City Hall.
