New Ways To Get Involved in Local Government

Austin City Hall

Have something to say to City Council, but can’t make it all the way to City Hall for their meetings? The city’s Remote/Virtual Citizen Communication program is now available at nine public libraries across the city.

Some things to note:

  • You will likely only have three minutes to speak, so be concise and practice once or twice before the meeting to ensure that your speech is short enough to get your entire point across in time.
  • General Citizen Communication is different than signing up to speak on specific agenda items at a City Council meeting. That can still only be done by showing up at City Hall and completing an electronic speaker registration form at one of the kiosks in the lobby of City Hall.
