Council adds additional General Public Comment Session each month

More than 150 people have signed up to speak before Denver City Council as the result of a monthly General Public Comment Session established last May. Because of the successful participation, Council members have added a second session each month.

Starting Sept. 18, public comment sessions will be held the first and third Mondays of each month. If there is no meeting on the first or third Monday, the session will be cancelled. The General Public Comment Session allows participants to address the Council on a topic not appearing on the agenda or scheduled for a public hearing.

How to sign up to speak:

  • Email Legislative Services at dencc@denvergov.org
  • Call 720-337-2000
  • Stop by Room 451 of the City & County Building

When to sign up:

  • The sign-up period opens at noon the Friday before the session and closes at 4 p.m. the day of the session.

What is required:

  • First and last name
  • A point of contact
  • Topic  

The public comment sessions will begin at 5 p.m. and last 30 minutes. Council will hear as many speakers as possible during this time. Speakers are selected on a first-come, first-served basis. No sign-up by proxy will be accepted. Each speaker will get 3 minutes to speak.
