Escondido City Council meetings are generally scheduled for the first four Wednesdays of each month at 5:00 p.m. At each regular meeting, the City Council follows an agenda which is prepared the preceding week by the City Clerk's office. Minutes are also prepared by the City Clerk's office.

Any item placed on the City Council agenda must be received by the City Clerk three weeks before the scheduled meeting. This allows it to be placed on a Future Agenda so Council members have advance notice of items to be discussed.

The agenda is posted at least 72 hours before the meeting as required by law. Copies of the agenda and accompanying reports are available on Thursday (after 3:30 p.m.) prior to the upcoming meeting. Citizens may review the information in the public viewing area of the Escondido City Clerk's office at City Hall, 201 North Broadway, at the Main Library at 239 South Kalmia during normal business hours, or online.

The City Clerk's office notifies the community when the agenda has been posted through a free subscriber service. If you would like to be placed on our notification list, please go to and register. Other community related messages or alerts from the City of Escondido are posted utilizing this system; at the time of registration you may indicate your preferences.

Council meetings are broadcast live on Cox Cable Channel 19 and are replayed the following Sunday and Monday evenings at 6:00 p.m. Meetings are also available online.

The public may address the City Council on any agenda item. Please complete a Speaker's Form, which is available on the side walls of the Chambers, and give it to the City Clerk. Comments are generally limited to 3 minutes. If you wish to speak concerning an item not on the agenda, you may do so under "Oral Communications." Please complete a Speaker's Form as noted above.
