City Council


The City Council normally meets at 7:00 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month in the City Council Chambers located at the Pittsburg Civic Center at 65 Civic Avenue.

PUBLIC PARTICIPATION The City Council encourages your participation at City Council meetings. Opportunities for the public to address the City Council are provided under the Public Comments, Consent Calendar and Public Hearing portions of the agenda. However, state law prohibits the City Council from taking action on any item not listed on the agenda, unless special determinations are made relating to the urgency and timing of the item. This item must be approved by a four-fifths vote of the City Council. If you wish to address the City Council please complete a speaker card and the Mayor will call upon you. Depending upon the number of speakers, the Mayor may determine that a speaking time limit is necessary.


In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, the City of Pittsburg will provide special assistance for disabled citizens. The Council Chamber is equipped with sound amplifier units for use by the hearing impaired. The units operate in conjunction with the Chamber's sound system. You may request the sound amplifier from the City Clerk for personal use during Council meetings. If you need special assistance to participate in this meeting, please contact the City Clerk at 252-4850. Notification 48 hours prior to the meeting will enable the City to make reasonable arrangements to ensure accessibility to this meeting. (28 CFR 35.102-35.104 ADA Title II)



Any supporting materials you wish to present should be given to the City Clerk before addressing the Council. Any material submitted during a public hearing will become part of the public record and cannot be returned.

You may submit material to the City Clerk's office until the Tuesday before the Monday City Council meeting. This allows for distribution of the material in advance. This gives the Council Members time to review the information before it is presented. If you have any questions regarding this procedure, call the City Clerk's Office at 252-4850.
