Participate in Rocklin City Council Meetings by Zoom

Post

To encourage public involvement and help slow the spread of COVID-19, live participation in Rocklin City Council meetings is now possible by Zoom! Members of the public can view and make public comments on items from a computer or smartphone, as well as listen and comment by simply calling in.

Requirements for participation in-person or by e-mail are also listed below.

Participate Via Computer or Smartphone

You can join the meeting from your computer using a web browser or the Zoom software (if it is installed). You can also join the meeting using the Zoom app on your IOS or Android device. Please refer to the Zoom links below for instructions on how to install the software. Once the software is installed, you can join the meeting using the meeting ID and password found on the agenda.

How To Make A Public Comment By Zoom

When you join the meeting, you will be muted by default. To inform the City Clerk that you would like to make a public comment, you will use the “Raise Hand” feature.  Instructions for using the “Raise Hand” feature when using a computer or mobile device can be found at the link below:

In-Person Participation

All guests attending Rocklin City Council meetings in person will be required to wear masks indoors and follow social distancing guidelines.

Capacity in the main meeting room will be limited to the first 50 attendees. No standing room will be provided. After the limit is met, attendees will be asked to sign up for public comment on the item they are interested in. They will then be directed to one of two overflow locations on site (one will be an outside space) to view/listen to the meeting until called upon to speak.

After members of the public make their comments at the podium, they will be asked to return to the area where they were originally participating in the meeting.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping everyone to stay safe and healthy.

Participate By E-mail

Emailed comments will be accepted and read aloud (subject to comment time limits) by submission to the City Clerk at hope.ithurburn@rocklin.ca.us at the appropriate time. *If you do not wish for your comment to be read aloud during the meeting, please make note of it in the subject line of your email message (i.e., DO NOT READ ALOUD). 

All emailed comments shall be subject to the same rules as would otherwise govern public comments.
