The agendas and supporting documents for every City of Oklahoma City public meeting will be posted as normal to okc.gov/agenda. Agendas will include instructions to participate for all meetings conducted by teleconference or videoconference.

How it works

Tuesday’s meeting begins at 8:30 a.m. and has no physical location. Council members, staff and others may participate only by videoconference or phone.

Meetings conducted remotely are in accordance with changes to the state Open Meetings Act included in the Oklahoma Legislature’s SB 661. The changes define how to legally hold open meetings remotely during the pandemic and beyond.

Other City boards, trusts, commissions and committees are also using teleconference or videoconference formats to conduct business.
