NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Starting on Wednesday, April 7, the Naperville City Council will hold its meetings using a hybrid in-person/virtual format. The public will be able to provide comment on an agenda item or in Public Forum at the April 7 Council meeting in-person in Council Chambers as well as virtually through Zoom or by phone.

In the new format, some City Council members will be present in Council Chambers at the Naperville Municipal Center, with other City Council members participating remotely via Zoom. Due to technology upgrades put into place, Council members participating via Zoom will be able to be seen on screens in the Council Chambers and can fully interact with their colleagues and members of the public in Council Chambers.

The hybrid format is being utilized to allow for in-person participation while remaining mindful of existing COVID-19 protocols and gathering limits. Currently, a maximum of 50 people will be permitted at any one time in Council Chambers, including Council members and City staff. Face coverings will be required at all times, and seats will be clearly marked to encourage social distancing. The podium where the public addresses the City Council will be sanitized in between each use.
