Note on City Council meetings during COVID-19
Citizen feedback is important to the City of Wichita and we want to continue engaging with and listening to residents.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents and media are unable
to attend Wichita City Council meetings in person. To be as transparent as possible, the City is providing multiple alternative ways to engage. All meetings will be broadcast live on Cox cable channel 7, Wichita.gov and the City’s YouTube channel. The agenda is available at Wichita.gov.
Residents with a question or comment relevant to agenda items may participate by emailing comments or questions to
firstname.lastname@example.org, providing their name, address and which agenda item they are speaking toward, followed by their comments. To ensure comments are included,
all emails must be submitted by 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 19.
In lieu of reading written public comments live into the record during the council meeting, such comments shall be provided in writing to the Mayor and each City Council Member. All written comments shall be attached and made part of the official minutes of the public meeting by the City Clerk.
Also, if residents wish to speak to Council on an agenda item during the meeting, they can go to Century II, 225 W Douglas Street, where the City has prepared viewing rooms to accommodate social distancing and other preventative safety measures for residents to interact remotely with Council. The May 19, 2020 City Council meeting can be viewed and residents may speak to the Council via internet connection during public comment opportunities. Please view the attached PDF for information about parking locations at Century II. Enter Century II at the South Lobby between Century II and the Expo Hall. Signs and City staff will direct residents to the viewing rooms. This is a temporary measure to allow better resident engagement and participation with Council while City Hall is closed.
