The current rules for public participation and conduct will continue to be enforced at each meeting.

The meeting schedule will continue to be posted on the City’s website calendar, including any cancellations.

Anyone with questions about a City public meeting, is asked to call City Clerk Randall Jones (816) 380-8916.
