CITY OPENS MEETING AGENDAS
TO ONLINE COMMENTS
Web users now have the opportunity to post comments on agenda items for Las Vegas City Council and city Planning Commission meetings.
Agendas for upcoming council and commission sessions can be accessed at lasvegasnevada.gov/find/jun2013.asp.
Site visitors can click items that interest them if they wish to comment. The comments become part of the official record, the city said. The comments populate in real time, allowing council members or planning commissioners to see them as they are submitted, including while the meeting is occurring. Comments received on items after they have been heard will not be included in the official meeting record, the city said.
The new system is one way the city is working to make local government more accessible and convenient to residents.
Another way residents can be heard is through yourvoicevegas.com, which allows for discussion on topics involving city issues.
