City Council Meeting and Workshop Rules


Time has been set aside on the agenda for visitors. Should you wish to comment or ask questions about an item already on the agenda or any item not listed, please do not hesitate. When the Mayor asks for visitor comments, simply raise your hand and you will be recognized.

When commenting, we ask that you be courteous to all and that you limit your comments to an expression of concern or constructive suggestions. Comments on non-agenda items will be directed to staff or a Council committee for research with no action until a following Council meeting. If your concerns are deemed to be an emergency situation, the City Council may take immediate action on the item. Should your presentation include a request for action by the Council or staff, it would be helpful if you could also provide a written request for this action.

Pursuant to City Council rules, we request that you limit your comments to five minutes. The City Council has a great number of issues and concerns to deal with. By being brief, yet specific, you allow us more time to expedite action pertaining to your concerns and the concerns of all Saint Peter residents. In addition, if your remarks appear to have strayed beyond the scope of a constructive presentation, you may be interrupted and asked to conclude your comments. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Goal Sessions

In months in which a fifth Monday occurs, the City Council meets in goal sessions. These sessions begin at 3 pm and while the goal session is open to the public, the public is not allowed to participate in the goal sessions. Goal sessions are normally held in the Governors Room of the Community Center, however, the location may change. Please contact the City Administrator's Office at 507-934-0663 for exact location information.
