Members of the public are invited to address the Town Council at Town Council meetings, held on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.
Due to the Governor’s Executive Orders N-25-20 and N-29-20, which suspend certain requirements of the Brown Act, and pursuant to the orders by the Health Officer of the County of Contra Costa regarding COVID-19, the Town offices are closed to the public and meetings are not physically open to the public. All meetings are being held by Zoom teleconference platforms.
Public participation at meetings is welcomed. Public comments can be provided either in person at the meeting or in writing prior to the meeting.
Regular meetings include an agenda item titled Public Comments and Suggestions. This item allows the public to comment on items not the agenda. Public comments on items on the agenda are taken following the report and questions and prior to Council discussion of that agenda item. Each individual generally has three minutes to provide comment, however, the timing may be limited by the Mayor/Chair in order to allow all interested speakers to participate. For information on providing public comments during the meeting see How to Follow or Participate During the Meetings below.
Written public comments are accepted in advance of the meeting. Written comments should be emailed to the Clerk at TownClerk@moraga.ca.us. Comments received before 4:30 p.m. on the day of the meeting will be provided in their entirety to the Council prior to the meeting and will be a part of the record but will not be read verbally at the meeting. Addresses and phone numbers are redacted from correspondence. If you would like your comments to be anonymous, attach a document with your comments to your email.
To maximize public safety while still maintaining transparency and public access, members of the public may observe the meeting by accessing it through: livestream.com/moraga.
Members of the public may also participate by providing public comment during the meeting by joining the Zoom webinar, which will require that the Zoom app be downloaded to your smartphone or computer. Each meeting is assigned its own separate webinar address and instructions for joining each meeting webinar can be found on the first page of the meeting Agenda:
