The community will see changes in how the City of Key West conducts City Commission meetings. Beginning with the June 8, 2023, meeting, a morning session will address the consent agenda, presentations, discussion items, and proclamations. This session starts at 9 AM at City Hall.
The evening session begins at 5 PM the same day and will include ordinances and other public hearing items. The Mayor and City Commission can move any item from the morning session to the evening session for discussion.
Public comment will be part of the morning session. However, evening comments can be requested of the commission. In addition, the commission will continue to accept and consider the e-comments submitted by the public on the City's website.
By resolution, the commission voted to approve the change in procedure. Instead of meeting twice a month, they will meet on the second Thursday of the month. There will be no commission meeting in August.
