City of Madison Rolls Out New Hybrid Common Council Meeting Format
Common Council Meeting Will Offer Virtual and In-Person Public Participation
The Madison Common Council and Mayor Rhodes-Conway are excited to announce the development of a hybrid format for Common Council meetings to help further the City’s equity, accessibility and resident engagement goals. Members of the public may choose to view and/or provide comment in person or virtually at hybrid Council meetings.
“I am so pleased that Council will be back in person and that we will continue to facilitate robust public engagement with these new investments in hybrid,” said Mayor Satya. “And I want to thank all the staff that made it possible.”
“I’d like to give a special thanks to the City’s Clerk’s Office, Council Office, and Information Technology for their work in making hybrid Common Council meetings possible,” said Council President Keith Furman.
The Common Council determines the format of upcoming Council meetings in advance on an ongoing basis. Please check the online City meeting schedule to find out the planned format: https://www.cityofmadison.com/city-hall/committees/meeting-schedule.
