The City Council has modified its meeting schedule for the remainder of 2020. All Council and Committee meetings will be via teleconference (Zoom).
The Office of the City Clerk serves the Oakland City Council, City Administration, and residents of the City of Oakland. Our primary responsibilities include producing City Council's agenda materials, conduct of the City’s elections, political filings, and administration of records management services citywide. Additionally, the Office of the City Clerk provides free public access to Council meeting materials to ensure that members of the public can be informed, civically engaged citizens.
Here are the instructions on how to participate in virtual City Council meetings.
