The City of Rocklin City Council, as well as City boards and commissions, are sometimes required by state law and/or municipal code to hold public hearings.
Although a public hearing is also a public meeting, or occurs in the context of a public meeting, the main purpose of most public hearings is to obtain public testimony or comment. A public hearing may occur as part of a regular or special meeting, or it may be the sole purpose of a special meeting, with no other matters addressed.
There is generally a 10-day noticing period for public hearings.
