Citizen Participation
The Council and staff welcome information on pertinent concerns. Comments at the meeting should be brief and directed to specifics of the agenda item to enable Council to take appropriate action. 

Anyone wishing to address an item on the agenda should complete a speaker slip and submit it to the City Clerk at the beginning of the Council Meeting or no later than five minutes before the item is to be heard. The agenda item number should appear on the speaker slip.

A concern that is not on the agenda will be heard under "Non-Agenda Public Comment". Whenever possible, lengthy testimony should be presented to the Council in writing, and only pertinent points presented orally. When addressing the Council on any concern, there is a 3-minute time limit*.

The City Council also provides the City Manager and operating departments with resources necessary to carry out these policies. The Mayor presides at City Council meetings and represents the City at various ceremonial functions and meetings. The City Manager serves as the professional administrator of the City, coordinating the day-to-day operations and administration of the City. The City Manager appoints a professional staff to assist citizens.

The Council also appoints members to Santee citizen advisory boards, committees, and commissions. These bodies provide recommendations and advice to the City Council.
