Paso Robles City Council


What is a Closed Session?
At times the City Council must confidentially consider matters such as personnel, property acquisitions, leases, or litigation. Such matters may be considered in private (i.e., in closed sessions) and are conducted under the authority and in accordance with the State of California Brown Act. Visit the League of California Cities Open Government page to download/view the Guide to the Ralph M Brown Act.

What are "Public Comments"?
The Council reserves time at each meeting so that members of the public may address City government about items of business interest not on the agenda. This is the time to tell the Council what you think. Under the rules of the Brown Act no action can be taken until the item is placed on the agenda. The public has the freedom to make an opinion, complaint, or suggestion known. The Council may direct staff to look into your concern or suggest that you take the steps necessary to get it on a future agenda for consideration.

How can I be heard at a Council Meeting
When the Council presents an agenda item, the mayor will ask if anyone wishes to speak. If you would like to speak, you may step up to the public rostrum, speak directly into the microphone, first giving your name and address. All communications must be directed to the Mayor and the City Council.

What is a Quorum?
A quorum means that at least three Council members are present. There must be a quorum  in order to conduct a City Council meeting.

What are Study Sessions?
At study sessions, the Council conducts informal and typically more in-depth discussion of specific issues. Study sessions are public meetings, however, no official action may be taken by the Council at a study session.
