Cleveland City Council Considering Public Comment Period
Cleveland City Council is drafting legislation to change the council’s meeting rules to create a public comment period.
Currently, the public is only allowed to speak at committee meetings at the discretion of the committee chairs.
Members of the public have not been allowed to speak at City Council meetings except in the 1920s when the city was under a city manager form of government.
The new legislation is expected to be enacted in August and effective in September.
