New Key West City Commission Procedures
The community will see some changes in the way the City of Key West conducts City Commission meetings. Beginning with the June 8th meeting, there will be a morning session to address the consent agenda, presentations, discussion items, and proclamations. This session begins at 9 a.m. at City Hall.
The evening session, which begins at 5 p.m. the same day, will include ordinances and other public hearing items. The Mayor and City Commission will have the ability to move any item from the morning session to the evening session for discussion.
Public comment will be part of the morning session. However, evening commenting can be requested of the commission. In addition, the commission will continue to accept and take into consideration the e-comments submitted by the public on the City’s website.
By resolution, the Commission voted to approve the change in procedure. Instead of meeting twice a month, they will meet on the second Thursday of the month. There will be no commission meeting in the month of August.
