Commerce City Council to Discuss Process of Citizen communications during City Council meetings

The Commerce City Council has raised the issue as to whether the agenda item "Citizen Communication" should be expanded to allow for discussion by City Council with a citizen on issues raised by a citizen during that part of a City Council meeting.

According to Commerce City, in the past, issues have arisen as to the length of City Council meetings. As a result, restrictions were placed on how Citizen Communications should be treated as part of the City Council meetings. Recently, some members of City Council have not been satisfied with the restrictions imposed regarding the "Citizen Communication" agenda item and have requested that the practice be reviewed and a policy adopted regarding citizen communications.

The issue will be discussed at the Monday, Aug. 8th meeting at Commerce City Civic Center.
