Spanish Interpretation at City Council Meetings

Ver esta página en español

The City Clerk's Office is piloting a new way to provide Spanish interpretation during regular City Council meetings to advance the civic participation of the Spanish-speaking community. 

Through December 2022, Spanish interpretation will be offered from 7 to 9 p.m. at City Council meetings on the first and third Monday of each month. 

If interpretation is needed beyond the 7-9 p.m. timeframe, email [email protected] in advance to ensure language services are available.
