Citizens can stay home, follow City Council meeting online


The Roswell City Council regular meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 14 at 6 p.m. at the Roswell Convention & Civic Center will feature public participation accessibility through the GoToMeeting web-based meeting service. The city has planned this to be a regular feature for City Council meetings during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

As the city of Roswell works to limit mass gatherings, city officials ask citizens to join the City Council meeting from home by watching and listening to the livestream (roswell-nm.gov/1091/Live-Stream). People can also access the meeting by phone at 1-646-749-3112. Citizens should use GoToMeeting (global.gotomeeting.com/join/327749213; access code: 327-749-213) to make comments during the public-comment portion of this week’s meeting.

The GoToMeeting link, along with a help-line phone number for technical assistance, will be available on the livestream page of the city’s website. A GoToMeeting app is also available for the meeting and can be found at global.gotomeeting.com/install/327749213.

Citizens wishing to participate by speaking at designated times during the meeting using GoToMeeting should sign up to speak by making a request in the “Chat” box during the 30 minutes immediately before the start of the meeting. The GoToMeeting accessibility will begin at 5:30 p.m. Those wishing to sign up to speak must do so before 6 p.m. Citizens are asked to include the topic about which they would like to speak. Any topic is acceptable for the public-comment portion of the meeting, but if a citizen wishes to speak about a specific topic on the agenda, he or she should request to speak under that agenda item.

The meeting agenda can be found at roswell-nm.gov/AgendaCenter.
