949-644-3001 <br />City Council Meeting Information: The Newport Beach City Council meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of most months <br />(the exceptions are August and December). Typically, there is a Study Session that starts at 4:00 p.m. Study sessions <br />are times for the Council to take a deeper look at a specific issue, or hear a presentation, that might eventually lead to a <br />specific and more formal action. A closed session often follows the Study Session. Closed sessions are typically to <br />address legal, personnel, and other matters where additional confidentiality is important. The Regular (evening) <br />Session starts at 7:00 p.m., and typically has a specific listing of 20-40 different items ready for formal votes. Items on <br />the "Consent Calendar" are heard all at once, unless a Council member has removed (aka "pulled") an item from the <br />Consent Calendar for specific discussion and separate vote. If an item on the agenda is recommended to be <br />"continued", it means that the item won't be heard nor voted on that evening, but will be pushed forward to another <br />noticed meeting. <br />Public Comment is welcomed at both the Study Session and the Regular Session. The public can comment on any item <br />on the agenda. If you want to comment on a Consent Calendar item that was not pulled from the Consent Calendar by a <br />Council Member, you will want to do so at the time listed on the agenda — right before the Council votes on the entire <br />Consent Calendar (it's Roman Numeral XIII on the posted agenda). If an item is pulled, the Mayor will offer that <br />members of the public can comment as that specific item is heard separately. Additionally, there is a specific section of <br />Public Comment for items not on the agenda, but on a subject of some relationship to the city government. <br />The Council meets in the Council Chambers at 100 Civic Center Drive, off of Avocado between San Miguel and East Coast <br />Highway. There is plenty of parking in the parking structure behind City Hall. You are always welcome to attend in <br />person, but you can also watch on TV (Channels 3/31) or on your computer. <br />This Insider's Guide is not an attempt to summarize every item on the Agenda —just the ones that seem of specific <br />interest to Dave.
