Agendas and Packets

At least 72 hours prior to each regular City Council meeting, agendas and agenda packets are available for review by the public during normal business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday) at Town Hall, 1198 El Camino Real, Colma, CA 94014. Agendas are available on the City Council Agenda page. Agendas and other notices are also posted on the Town’s official bulletin boards located:

  • In front of Town Hall, at 1198 El Camino Real;
  • at the Sterling Park Recreation Center, 427 F Street; and
  • on Clark Avenue, at the intersection of E Street.

If, however, a supporting document is not distributed until the regular meeting to which it relates, then the document will be made available to the public at the location of the meeting as listed on the agenda.

Consent Calendar

All matters listed under Consent Calendar are considered to be routine and are enacted together by one motion. There is no separate discussion of these items unless requested by a member of the Council prior to the time that the council votes on the motion to adopt.

Ordinances

An ordinance is a permanent law adopted by the City Council. Every ordinance must be considered at two (2) separate meetings. An ordinance typically becomes effective thirty days after
adoption by the City Council.

Resolutions

A resolution represents a legislative action of a temporary nature providing for the disposition of a particular item of business, such as approving a contract. Resolutions are read one time prior to action by City Council. Resolutions take effect immediately upon passage by a majority vote of the City Council.

Public Hearings

A public hearing is a special meeting that is designed to receive public input on a specific issue and may be scheduled periodically as required by law. Property owners within a specified distance will receive a formal mailed notice on the hearing subject, or in the case of general subjects, the notice requirement may be fulfilled by a notice published in a newspaper of general circulation.

Audience Participation

Individuals wishing to speak on an item not on the agenda may do so under the agenda item “Public Comments”. However, California law prevents the City Council from taking any action on an item that is not on the agenda. Non-agenda items may be referred to staff for action or report at a future meeting. There is no public comment period during special meetings. Individuals wishing to comment on matters that appear on the agenda will be invited to speak prior to the City Council taking action on that agenda item. In the interest of time and to enable all interested individuals to speak, the Mayor may limit comments to three (3) minutes. Written materials to be presented to the City Council should be given to the Recording Clerk for distribution.

Regular Meetings

The City Council meets regularly at 7:00 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, typically at the Council Chambers at Town Hall, to conduct business as may properly come before it.

Special Meetings

From time-to-time, the City Council may schedule special meetings to review an issue of importance within the community or consider legislation if timing requires action outside of its regular
schedule.

Closed Sessions

The City Council may hold a closed session for the purpose of deliberating or receiving information on specific subjects which are authorized by State law to be considered or heard in closed session.
