COVID-19 Local Update - in Brief
April 20, 2020
REMINDER: Monterey City Council Meeting tomorrow,
Tuesday, April 21
Since the COVID-19 Monterey County Shelter in Place order, the City of Monterey adapted Council meetings from in-person at the Council Chamber to one hundred percent virtual. In an effort to retain full transparency and public participation under these new conditions, the City has added a more robust option for watching and commenting during meetings. With our Access Media Productions (AMP) partner, who tapes and produces City meetings for rebroadcast, we have connected our YouTube channel at to broadcast meetings live.
  • When the public comment period is announced, call the telephone number that will be provided on-screen and announced by the Mayor. Enter the conference room number, then #.
  • You will be muted upon joining the call.
  • Enter *9 to "raise your hand." When it is your turn to speak, you will be unmuted.
  • Between comment periods, please hang up the phone. If you wish to comment on another item, please call back when the public comment period is announced.
