Got something to say? The Council is listening...


Prescott, AZ (December 9, 2021) – In the city’s ongoing efforts to promote transparency and public input, an Open Call to the Public will be added to the beginning of all Prescott City Council Voting Meetings, following any Proclamations or Presentations, beginning Tuesday, December 21st. 

This Open Call will allow citizens to address Council regarding items that are NOT on the posted agenda for up to 4 minutes each and a total of 40 minutes. It is important to note that this public comment time is being tested and may be revised in the future, there is an obligation that citizens wishing to address Council keep their comments focused with legitimate input for the members of Council. 

Additionally, pursuant to A.R.S. §38-431.01(H), members of the Council may NOT discuss items that are not specifically identified on the agenda and, therefore, cannot engage in a dialogue with citizens following receiving their comments. The Mayor, or presiding officer in his absence, will manage comments to ensure this opportunity does not negatively impact the Council’s ability to address the issues they are scheduled to vote on. Please note, citizens may continue to comment for three (3) minutes on items listed on the posted agenda as well. 

Public speaker cards will be available in Council Chambers and will be differentiated as follows: green comment cards for the Open Call to the Public and blue comment cards for Public Comment on agenda items. 


For additional information please contact the City Clerk’s Office. Council and staff welcome public engagement and look forward to hearing from our citizens.
