TO ORDER: Mayor
ROLL CALL: Councilmembers
1. PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD (NOT TO EXCEED A TOTAL OF 15 MINUTES):
The Council values your input. Individual speakers are limited to three minutes or as directed by the Chair. To address the Council you are asked to fill out a Request To Speak form and provide it to City Staff PRIOR TO this part of the agenda. Direction to staff may be given; however, State law does not allow action to be taken by the Council on these matters at this meeting. The law requires that notice be given to the public at large to allow for full disclosure and discussion of important public issues. To have City Council discussions and decisions on unnoticed items would prevent that type of public input necessary to make government decisions.
2. CITY COUNCIL GOAL-SETTING WORKSHOP. The City Council will discuss goals and objectives for the 2008-10 budget cycle.
