Public Comment Guidelines

Time is reserved at the beginning of each regular meeting for the City Council to receive comments from persons who have requested permission to speak. To request permission to speak you must call the Clerk of Council at 540-372-1010.

If you would like to speak before Council, we ask that you respect the following guidelines:

  • Clearly state your name and address.
  • Take no more than five (5) minutes (brevity is appreciated).
  • Confine your comments to City business.
  • Personal attacks on Councilmembers or others will not be tolerated.
