The Cedar Rapids City Council generally meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, except toward the end of the year, when the meetings are shifted to the first and third Tuesdays to avoid conflicts with holidays. Meetings are held in the Council Chambers on the third floor of City Hall, the former federal courthouse at 101 First Street SE. Attendees are encouraged to park in the downtown parking ramps or on nearby streets. The public comment period begins after the public hearings are held.

Agendas and Council Packets

Agendas and packets for City Council Regular Sessions are posted on the Friday before the meeting at approximately 4:00 p.m. Amendments may be made to the agenda at least 24 hours before the meeting time; in such cases an amended agenda will be posted on this page. Council packets contain draft documents for review purposes only and are subject to change without notice.

The Council will sometimes meet in Special Session at times other than set forth in the adopted Regular Session meeting schedule. Agendas (and packets, when applicable) will be posted at least 24 hours prior to a Special Session unless for good cause such notice is impossible or impractical, in which case as much notice as is reasonably possible shall be given.

A compilation of presentations shown to the Council is posted the day after the meeting.

Video of each regular Council session is posted by the Friday afternoon after the meeting. The searchable recordings are indexed by agenda item number, and they can be shared via email or social media.
