Interpreters for Speak to Council

Interpreters will be present at each official Council meeting, including Speak to Council.

The Council Meeting itself begins at 7:30 p.m. Each Committee presents to the entire Council the legislation it has considered along with its recommendations. Council then votes on each individual piece of proposed legislation, including any amendments.

After Council votes to adopt legislation, it is sent to the Mayor for signature. Enacted legislation is then filed with the City Clerk and printed in the annual "Proceedings of the Council of the City of Rochester".

All meetings of the Rochester City Council and its Committees are open to the public. Until further notice, they are held via Zoom and streamed live on YouTube and Facebook.

  • Please Note: Public Hearings will now be held following the monthly Committee Meeting; which is held on the Thursday before Council Meeting.
