During the Emergency Declaration issued by Governor Wolf for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, public hearings of City Council committees will be held remotely using Microsoft® Teams. These remote hearings may be viewed on Xfinity Channel 64, Fios Channel 40 or phlcouncil.com/watch-city-council as they occur.

Public testimony at a public hearing may only be given with regard to those matters printed on the agenda for that public hearing. Please consult the agenda for the Public Hearing at which you are interested in giving testimony for details. The agendas for public hearings of City Council committees can be found at https://phila.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx.

In general, speakers that are interested in giving testimony at a City Council committee hearing must call the phone number, or send an e-mail to the address listed in the agenda for that hearing by 3 p.m. the day before the hearing and submit the following information:

• Full name

• Callback telephone number where you can be reached

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

Speakers who submitted the above information within the required time frame will be telephoned during the public hearing and invited to the remote hearing. They will be given additional instructions by the Committee Chair once they are connected.
