City Council Meetings

Meetings of the Flagstaff City Council are governed by the Arizona Revised Statutes Section 38-431 (commonly referred to as the Open Meeting Law). In compliance with Section 38-431.01(G) a link to the Arizona State Attorney General's Handbook Section regarding the Open Meeting Law is available. Additionally, information regarding Conflict of Interest is available from their office.

The City Council has adopted Rules of Procedure (PDF) for the conduct of their meetings.

Documents

The Current Working Calendar is provided as a courtesy to the public; however, this is a fluid document and changes daily. The document will be updated every Friday afternoon once Council agendas/packets are distributed.

Executive Sessions

An executive session is a closed meeting held for the purpose of discussing certain limited matters including legal, real estate, and personnel issues, as defined in A.R.S. Section 39-431.03. Executive sessions are generally scheduled every other Tuesday beginning at 4:30 pm. No formal action is taken at an executive session; it is for the purpose of discussion and providing information or advice from staff to Council and informal direction from Council to staff. All formal action is taken at a regular council meeting.

Special Meetings

This category provides for the posting of miscellaneous meetings held by the City Council, such as neighborhood meetings or town halls.

Public Notices

These are notices of functions at which a quorum of the City Council may be attending, but City business is not transacted at these times.

Agendas

Agendas for the regular meetings and work sessions are posted the preceding week at City Hall and also on the City's website. All notices are posted at least 24 hours prior to the meeting/function, in accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes. From time to time, agendas may not be available due to technical difficulties. The official posting site is on the City Council Bulletin Board located on the first floor in City Hall.

Sign up to receive notification when agendas have been posted to the website.
