Planning a Meeting with Your Council Person

Meeting with your council members to request that they address your concerns is a vital part of the democratic process. Your council is there to serve you, their constituent, and input from you helps them represent you more effectively. Being prepared for the meeting makes it easier for your council member to move forward with the process and pass a resolution working with you and your fellow citizens.

  • Discuss a timeline: Once your council member agrees to introduce a resolution, discuss a timeline and strategy for getting the resolution passed. You will want to know when the resolution is going to be introduced so that you can plan an effective press event for maximum visibility.
