City Council Meetings


The City Clerk’s Office gives notice of all City Council proceedings to the general public and records all actions taken by the City Council. City Council meeting agendas are distributed electronically free of charge.

You may sign up for e-agendas. The City Clerk’s Office also maintains past and current agendas and minutes of City Council meetings for public review.

City Council Meetings are held at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month. City Council Worksessions are held at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays preceding the City Council Meetings. City Council also holds a Citizen’s Forum at 5:30 p.m. before the Regular City Council Worksession. Both are held in the City Hall Council Chambers, One City Plaza.

PLEASE NOTE: As of FEBRUARY 2015, all FUTURE City Council meeting agendas, packets, legal summaries and meeting minutes will be hosted on an external web site.

Call to the Public

Call to the Public is an itemized agenda category included on the regular scheduled City Council Meeting.  Call to the Public is an opportunity for citizen's to sign up the same night of the meeting and speak on topics that may appear on the agenda or topics not included on the agenda.  However, speakers wanting to comment on issues not listed on the agenda should be aware that the Arizona Open Meeting Law permits City Council to discuss only those items listed on the agenda.  If you would like to participate in a City Council meeting, a Speaker Request Form is required. Please fill out the Speaker Request Card and return it to the City Clerk's Office prior to 5:00 p.m. on the day of the City Council meeting. Individuals may also sign up by phone, (928) 373-5035, or in person at the City Hall Council Chambers, prior to the start of each City Council meeting. City Clerk's Office staff is available in the Council Chambers, prior to each meeting, to assist with completing the form and information concerning agenda items.

Citizen's Forum

The Yuma City Council values citizen comments and input; as such the Citizen's Forum venue was implemented to allow dialogue between City Council and citizens.  Citizen Forum speaker request forms must be completed in advance of the meeting and must be submitted to the City Clerk's Office.  If you would like to participate in an upcoming Citizen’s Forum you will need to submit a Request no later than two weeks prior to a scheduled forum so the City Clerk can properly agendize the items.

To determine the date and time for an upcoming meeting, please review the City Council Schedule of Meetings, Worksessions & Roundtables.
