City Commission meetings and meetings of several other boards and commissions are available to watch live online (including the Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, Citizens Public Safety Review and Appeals Board, Civil Rights Board, Natural Features Protection Review Board, and Environmental Concerns Committee). You can watch these meetings on the City of Kalamazoo's Facebook and YouTube pages, on Public Media Networks website, and local government channel 190 if you are a cable subscriber.
Most meetings that are broadcast or live stream will also accept public comments by telephone. To provide public comment by phone, you must call into the meeting during the appropriate time for public comment. For City Commission meetings, this is generally near the beginning of the meeting. The meeting agenda will show where the public comment period is relative to the other business before the board.
To provide public comment by phone, call in during the public comment period of the meeting:
Calls are played live in the order that they are received. If you call outside of the public comment period, you will not have the opportunity to comment. Please mute your TV or computer during your comments to help prevent feedback.
