March 30 City Commission meeting: Public Participation Details

Due to Executive Order 2020-21, the March 30 City Commission meeting will be held virtually and City Commissioners and staff will attend remotely through Zoom video conferencing.

This meeting will be streamed on Channel 191 and on the City of Marquette YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/CityofMarquetteGov). Please note that the YouTube livestream will have at least a 20 second delay.

Public Participation

There will be three options for public participation in this meeting: video conferencing, phone conferencing or written comment. There will be two public comment periods for the meeting, one at the beginning and one at the end. Comments will be limited to three minutes and speakers must give their name and address. Written comments will be limited to 500 words.

Tonight marks the first "Marquette Moment" - at 6:30 PM each night, the City Commission is encouraging you to step outside your front door and take a moment to visually check in on your neighbors - wave, say hi, ask them how they're doing, etc. while continuing to comply with social distancing. We think this is a great way to safely look out for one another and decrease the sense of social isolation and loneliness that weeks of sheltering at home can foster in many of us (myself included). Please participate, share on social media, and let your friends and neighbors know about the Marquette Moment at 6:30 PM each night! ... See MoreSee Less
