Take Part In Public Meetings

The Vail Town Council meets the first and third Tuesday of each month for regularly scheduled work sessions and regular meetings which take place at the Vail Town Council Chambers located at 75 S. Frontage Road.

WORK SESSIONS

 

Work Sessions are informal study sessions beginning early afternoon and scheduled for staff or presenters to provide information and updates to the Town Council members. No formal motions are made or voted upon at this session except for scheduled quasi-judicial hearings and motions for conduct of the meeting. Examples include a motion to adjourn or a motion for executive session. While open to the public, citizen input is allowed only at council’s discretion (except for parties to a quasi-judicial proceeding).

REGULAR MEETINGS

 

Regular Meetings include topics that require official action from town council. Public input is taken on many items considered on this agenda. There are several formats for taking official action including proclamations, resolutions and ordinances.

The sequence of decision making for agenda items is as follows with an opportunity for citizen input offered at every meeting as follows:

  • Staff Presentation
  • Questions and Clarification
  • Citizen Comments
  • Council Comments
