The City of Red Bluff welcomes you to their meetings, which are regularly scheduled for the first and third Tuesdays of each month.  Your participation and interest are encouraged and appreciated.  Meeting notices are available in appropriate alternative formats, upon request of a person with a disability.  If accommodations are needed for individuals with disabilities, please contact the Deputy City Clerk’s office prior to the day of the meeting.

 

The Agenda is divided into two sections:

 

            CONSENT AGENDA:  These items include routine financial and administrative actions and are usually approved by a single majority vote.  Any City Councilmember, staff member or interested person may request that an item be removed from the Consent Agenda and those items are usually considered following approval of the remaining Consent Agenda.

 

            REGULAR AGENDA:  These items include significant financial and administrative actions of special interest that are usually approved individually by a majority vote.  The Regular Agenda also includes noticed hearings and public hearings.  The times on the agenda are approximate.

 

            The deadline for items to be placed on the City’s agenda is 5:00 p.m. on the preceding Tuesday, unless a holiday intervenes.  Items not listed on the Agenda can only be considered by the City Council if they qualify under Government Code Section 54954.2(b) (typically this applies to items meeting the criteria as an off agenda emergency).

This time is set-aside for citizens to address the City Council on any item of interest to the public that is within the subject matter jurisdiction of the City Council. For items that are on the agenda, public comment will be heard when the item is discussed.  If your comments concern an item that is noted as a public hearing, please address the City Council after the public hearing is opened for public testimony.  The Mayor reserves the right to limit each speaker to three (3) minutes.  Please understand that by law, the City Council cannot make decisions on matters not on the agenda and matters of concern will be referred to the City Manager's Office.
