Providing a Safe Environment for City of Appleton Common Council and Committee Meetings
City of Appleton staff members continue to work toward providing a safe and effective
means to deliver critical City services while limiting possible exposures during the COVID-19
health emergency. This includes the ability to safely conduct Common Council, Committee,
and Board meetings.
While in-person participation during Council meetings has been the regular practice prior to
COVID-19, the City is strongly encouraging and making available other, safer, means of
participation for the public. As always, members of the public can provide input directly to
Council members via phone or email prior to meetings. Additionally, the City has made
available an option to participate virtually through a video link during live Council meetings.
Members of the public who wish to contribute virtually during live Council meetings must
call to register with the City Clerk’s office by 3:00 p.m. on the day before the meeting.
Remote public participation will be limited to City residents or those directly affiliated with
agenda items and related projects. Public participation is limited to items appearing on the
Council agenda, and individuals should be prepared to provide the item number to the
Clerk’s office upon registration along with their name, address, phone number, and email
address. Those registered for the meeting will be emailed a link the day of the meeting and
allowed five (5) minutes to speak in the order in which they are registered. Once input has
been received, participants will be asked to leave the virtual meeting and then have the
option to view the live stream available on the City’s website.
