CITY OF JOLIET MEETINGS & AGENDAS

2020 City Council Meeting Schedule

 

OMA Findings— 2020 PAC 62592

 

Local State of Emergency – Temporary Public Participation Procedures

Pursuant to Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity's Guidelines recommend best practices that limit an in-person meeting to 50 people or less (Council Chambers allows for 18 members of the public) while adhering to social distancing guidelines. During meetings, any member of the public physically present in the Council Chambers in excess of the limit will be asked to wait in another room with live feed to the meeting until the Citizens To Be Heard on Agenda Items section or Public Comments section of the meeting.  

 Pursuant to the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity’s Guidelines, it is recommended that any individual appearing in-person wear a face-covering to cover their nose and mouth.

 Citizens who are unable to attend the meeting can email in advance of the meeting to publiccomment@joliet.gov.

 SUBMIT WRITTEN COMMENTS

After publication of the agenda, email comments to publiccomment@joliet.gov. When providing written comments to be included as public participation at a public meeting, clearly identify the following in the subject line: 

  • The date of the meeting.
  • The type of meeting for the written comments (e.g. Joliet City Council meeting, etc.).
  • Name and any other identifying information the participant wishes to convey to the public body.
  • The category of public participation - Citizens to be Heard on Agenda Items, Public Hearings agenda items or Public Comments (non-agenda items).
  • For Citizens to be Heard on Agenda Items and Public Hearings agenda items, identify and include the specific agenda topic (e.g. issuance of a Class “A” Liquor License for AAA business) or specific Memo number (e.g. COUNCIL MEMO #200-20).

 If you would like to submit written comments for Zoning Board of Appeals, Plan Commission, and Historic Preservation Committee, please click here. 

The entire content of the comments will be subject to public release. The City of Joliet will be under no obligation to redact any information.

The contents of all comments will be placed into a shared file for the public body to access and read.

It is strongly recommended that the comments are emailed not less than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the meeting so the appropriate Council members, Commissioners, Board and Committee members have adequate time to review the comments prior to the meeting.
