In accordance with Executive Orders from the Office of the Governor, the May 11 City Commission work session and regular meeting will be held virtually, with City Commissioners and Staff attending remotely through Zoom video conferencing.
The work session will be streamed on the City of Marquette YouTube channel starting at 4:30 p.m. and the regular meeting will be streamed on Channel 191 and YouTube starting at 6 p.m. The YouTube channel is located at www.youtube.com/user/CityofMarquetteGov. Please note that the livestreams will have at least a 20 second delay.
There will be three options for public participation in these meetings: video conferencing, phone conferencing or written comment. There will be two public comment periods for each 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.
Members of the public wishing to make a video comment will need to visit https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87507960859 on a computer or smart device that has a camera.

When participating via video or phone conferencing, you will be placed into a virtual lobby/on-hold until the Public Comment portions of the meetings are reached. Once Public Comment begins, the Mayor will go through each person waiting in the lobby one at a time and provide them with the opportunity to address the Commission. It is recommended that participants follow the meeting on Channel 191 or YouTube to know when the Public Comment portion is occurring and be ready to make their comment.
The video and phone conference lobby will open at 4:20 p.m. for the work session and at 5:50 p.m. for the regular meeting.
Written comments can be submitted using the form at www.marquettemi.gov/publiccomment/ or directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Written submissions for both meetings will be accepted until 3 p.m. on Monday, May 11.
