Speaking at Meetings
The Lake Oswego City Council sets aside time at each regular meeting to hear from citizens. If you'd like an opportunity to speak, complete a Citizen Comment card on the table outside 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 citizen comment period the Mayor will call your name. Come forward to the presentation table and remember to speak clearly into the microphone. After stating your name, you have three minutes to address the council on your topic of choice.
The City Council regularly conducts public hearings. The hearings are noticed to the public in advance, and a those who wish to testify must complete a Request to Provide Public Comment card for the City Recorder. The Mayor will call your name following the staff presentation.
