City Council meets in person Monday
ROSEBURG, OR – The Roseburg City Council will hold its first in-person meeting in more than a year on Monday, July 12, after the City ended most COVID-19 restrictions based on updated state guidelines.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Roseburg City Hall, 900 S.E. Douglas Ave. in Roseburg.
The City continues Covid-19 capacity restrictions of 35 square feet per person for the time being, so the City Council chamber capacity is limited to 47 people.
City Council meetings can also be watched via Facebook Live at facebook.com/cityofroseburg, or viewed the next day through the City website at cityofroseburg.org/your-government/mayor-council/council-videos. The Charter Cable PEG Channel 191 has been experiencing technical issues and is not available at this time.
People can make public comments in person at the meeting or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by 4 p.m. the day of the meeting. Be sure to include your name, address, phone number and the agenda item you’d like to provide public comment on.
People who address the Council at the meeting must state their name, address and whether they live in Roseburg for the record. All remarks must be made to the entire City Council.
Speakers will each be given six minutes to provide testimony and comments. However, testimony must be new and not previously presented to the Council. There’s no time limit for comments during public hearings.
Anyone who’d like to comment on an agenda item can do so when the Council addresses that item. People who’d like to comment on a Consent Agenda item, or anything not on the meeting agenda, can do so during the “Audience Participation” agenda item. The Council allocates a total of 30 minutes for audience participation.
If someone from the public would like to address the Council about a complex matter, the mayor or a majority of councilors can postpone the public comment/s to the last agenda item, "Items From Mayor, Councilors or City Manager," after the Council's business agenda has been completed, or schedule the matter for continued discussion at a future Council meeting.
The mayor and City Council reserve the right to respond to audience comments until after the audience participation portion of the meeting has been closed. The Council also reserves the right to delay any requested action until they are fully informed on the matter.
Roseburg City Council meetings are held at 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Mondays of each month, except in special circumstances when special or joint meetings are scheduled.
