Call to Order

9:55 AM – Opening Moment

It is our custom here at City Council to start our meetings with a peaceful moment by inviting different people from walks of life and different faiths to share their prayers or moments of reflection. This is an important way that we celebrate the diversity that exists in our city and begin our meetings with everyone focused and aligned for the greater good.

Dr. Jim Rigby of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church
