City Council meetings are generally held on Tuesday nights, once a month. Prior to the start of the actual Council meeting, each month there is a "Speak to Council" session that begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by the actual City Council meeting at 7:30 p.m.

The Meeting will be held online, and can be streamed live on the Council's Facebook Page or YouTube Page.  

The 7:30 p.m. Council meetings are broadcast live on City 12, the City's government access channel that is available to Spectrum Cable subscribers – Channel 1303. The meetings are also streamed live on the City's website, www.cityofrochester.gov.

The entire "A List" will be read prior to the meeting starting, if there are comments on the "B List" left unread after the hour expires those comments will be read at the conclusion of the City Council Meeting. 
  • In order to be shared, all comments must include the individual's name, address, phone number, and topic (only your name and topic will be shared publicly).
