Pursuant to Code of Virginia § 2.2-3707, meeting notices are posted at least three working days prior a meeting, except for special meetings which are noticed as soon as reasonable under the circumstances. The City of Charlottesville posts its notice of regular public meetings for the calendar year following adoption of the annual meeting calendar in January. Proposed agendas and agenda packet materials (unless exempt) are provided to the public at the same time as such documents are furnished to the members of the City Council, generally five days before the meeting date.
Agendas and supporting materials for special meetings are distributed to the public contemporaneously with the City Council.
Individuals may create a login and subscribe to receive notification of agenda postings at www.charlottesville.gov.
