City resumes in-person City Council meetings, packet briefings

Public able to participate in meetings in person or virtually

The City of Round Rock resumed City Council packet briefings Tuesday, June 9.

City Council members will also return to the dais in person for packet briefings and Council meetings; the public will continue to be able to participate in person or virtually via Zoom.

The City began incorporating videoconferencing for public meetings starting April 1, after Gov. Greg Abbott issued a proclamation suspending various provisions of Chapter 551, Government Code, relating to Open Meetings in order to advance the public health goal of limiting face-to-face meetings, i.e., social distancing. 

The public is able to watch meetings live and participate in meetings (when applicable) such as speaking during citizen communication and public hearings. (Please note: the three-minute time limit will still be in effect.)

All public meetings will continue to be live streamed on our website and can be accessed at roundrocktexas.gov/replay or roundrocktexas.gov/tv and broadcast live on Spectrum Channel 10 and U-verse Channel 99.

If you only wish to watch a meeting and not speak, there is nothing you need to do but use one of the methods above to view the meeting live.

  • If you want to participate in the meeting by speaking during citizen communication or a public hearing, you may do so in person or via Zoom if you do not wish to come in person. To speak via Zoom please visit roundrocktexas.gov where a registration link will be posted on the calendar entry for each public meeting. Registration links are specific to each meeting. Please make sure you are registering for the meeting you wish to speak at. Members of the public will need to register in advance to speak by using the link provided on the calendar entry for that meeting and contacting the City Clerk at swhite@roundrocktexas.gov, providing your name, address, phone number and email, as well as the name of the meeting and agenda item number you wish to speak on.
  • Once registered, instructions will be emailed to you on how to join the videoconference or call in to the videoconference by phone. The link included in this e-mail is specific to you and cannot be shared.
  • If you wish to speak in person, there is nothing you need to do but show up and complete a citizen communication card at the back of the chambers; please note that social distancing is still being practiced in the chambers and therefore seating is limited.

Please visit roundrocktexas.gov for updates to any or all of the information provided above or contact Sara White, City Clerk, at 512-218-5404.
