Effective immediately, Prescott’s City Council meetings will not have an in-person public audience. Meetings will continue and be live streamed on the city’s website (https://prescott.12milesout.com/live-video), Prescott Media Center (https://www.prescottmediacenter.org/videoondemand) and on the city’s Facebook page. Members of the public may submit comments related to items on the posted agenda through the city’s website at http://www.prescott-az.gov/city-management/leadership/speaker-request-form/ and those comments will be read at the dais by the City Clerk.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends avoiding close contact with people who are sick and putting distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. By closing meetings to an in-person audience until further notice, it is the hope of the City Council that the spread of COVID-19 be limited in the Prescott community. During this time of no in-person audience, agendas will be limited to topics that are essential for ongoing city business.
We encourage the public to continue their active participation in City Council meetings by viewing online and submitting pertinent comments online. Comments submitted through the city website will follow the same guidelines as the in-person comment process. Interested parties should include their name, agenda item and contain no more than three minutes of commentary. Profane and threatening language will not be read.
All city Board, Commission and Committee meetings outside of City Council are being placed on hold until further notice.
