CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS
March 1, 2021
Special Meeting 6:00 PM
Regular Meeting  7:00 PM

On March 18, 2020, Governor Whitmer signed Executive Order No. 2020-15, which temporarily suspends the Michigan Open Meetings Act (OMA) rules requiring meetings of public bodies to be held at a physical place with a physical presence at the meeting. This Order, under the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and Michigan law, was issued to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health while providing for the general public to continue to be able to participate in government decision-making. 
 
On March 23, 2020, the Governor signed Executive Order No. 2020-21, designed to enforce social distancing to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Accordingly, the Oak Park City Council will be holding the regularly scheduled City Council Meeting electronically and not in City Council Chambers.  This action is consistent with Executive Order No. 2020-15. 
 
We invite the public to participate in City Council’s electronic meeting. The procedures are as follows.  

ELECTRONIC COUNCIL MEETING ACCESS

  1. Via online video conference on your computer, tablet, or smartphone at:

  1. Watch the City Council meeting cablecast on cable station 16 or the City of Oak Park YouTube Channel. 

Please do NOT access the meeting using both video conference and phone—it creates significant noise feedback. 

ELECTRONIC COUNCIL MEETING PARTICIPATION 
The following are the procedures by which persons may contact members of the public body to provide input or ask questions about any business that will come before it at its meeting.  

  • Public comment will be during the “Call to Audience” portion of the agenda.  

  • If a public hearing is scheduled, public comment on that particular item will be during the “Public Hearing” portion of the agenda. 

  • Video conferencing audience: To make a comment during the Call to Audience portion of the meeting, use the “raise your hand” feature or if participating by phone state your name and express your interest when called upon to do so.  The moderator will call on the phone participants during the Call to Audience.

  • The time limit for an individual’s public comments shall remain 3 minutes.   

The Zoom meeting has a chat feature. Chat is considered unofficial comment—it will not be reviewed by City Council, nor will it be entered into official minutes. The City will follow the same rules as they do for social media commentary. 

Access & Participation for Persons with Disabilities  
For persons with disabilities who wish to participate in the electronic meeting:
