Speaking at Meetings
The Lake Oswego City Council sets aside time at each regular meeting to hear from the community. If you'd like an opportunity to speak, complete a Public Comment card on the table inside the chamber and give it to the City Recorder prior to the start of the meeting. Topics do not need to be related to a specific agenda item. In the event that the meeting is virtual, please consult the meeting agenda for participation instructions.
During the Public Comment period the Mayor will call your name to come forward to the presentation table. Remember to speak clearly into the microphone and after stating your name, you will have three minutes to provide information or raise an issue to the Council regarding items not on the agenda or items that do not include a Public Hearing. No multi-media presentations are allowed during public comment. Please use the time to speak to the Mayor and Councilors.
The City Council regularly conducts Public Hearings. The Public Hearings are noticed in advance, and those who wish to testify in person must complete a blue Request to Provide Public Testimony card and submit to the City Recorder. The Mayor will call your name following the staff presentation to come forward to the presentation table to testify within the time limits observed.
