South Pasadena City Council will start accepting live public comment via Zoom beginning Wednesday, May 19, 2021.
By News Desk
A voicemail call-in option for public comment will be discontinued in favor a newly enacted zoom feature by the city. Participants will be able to “raise their hand” using the Zoom icon during the meeting, and they will have their mic un-muted during comment portions of the agenda to speak for up to 3 minutes per item. Written public comments can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a closed session, public comment will be taken at the beginning of the meeting and then the public will be released from the meeting so that the Council can convene discussion of items allowed under Government Code. Any action taken in closed session will be reported by the City Attorney during the open session meeting immediately following. A separate Zoom webinar link will be provided for open session for the public to attend.
Speakers are invited to provide name (optional) and the agenda item about which they are commenting or, alternatively, to specify that they are making a general public comment about an item not appearing on the agenda. Visit the South Pasadena City Council agenda meeting page for additional guidelines.
Re-opening of City Facilities
On Monday, May 17, the City of South Pasadena will reopen certain facilities in accordance with established safety protocols. Face coverings and social distancing will still be required. Virtual services will continue to be offered for convenience, and appointments are still recommended to reduce wait times and ensure social distancing.
Interim City Manager Sean Joyce said:
Over the last few weeks, employees have phased back to the workplace as necessary to deliver services to the community, while maintaining safe operations. As we transition to full reopening between May 17 and June 1, employees will be on site during regular business hours.
We encourage the public to continue to make appointments when visiting city facilities and follow protocols posted prominently at each city facility per Los Angeles County Health Orders.
