For Richmond believes that an active, engaged and thriving community requires an informed public.
That’s why, earlier this year, we began posting and linking to the Richmond City Council agenda in our weekly e-newsletter.
“It’s important to us as a Richmond-centric nonprofit organization to meet the needs of each and every resident in our community and to positively impact our common everyday neighbors,” said For Richmond Executive Director Kyra Worthy.
“A huge part of that equation is doing our part to keep residents informed about the issues up for consideration and decisions being made at the Richmond City Council level,” she added.
According to the City of Richmond’s website, regular Richmond City Council meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, while special meetings are held on the other Tuesdays of the month. During the month of August, the City Council is on recess.
The current members of the Richmond City Council include: Tom Butt, mayor; Jovanka Beckles, vice mayor; Ben Choi, councilmember; Eduardo Martinez, councilmember; Gayle McLaughlin, councilmember; Jael Myrick; councilmember; and Melvin Willis, councilmember.
Those residents interested in attending a Richmond City Council meeting are advised to check the agenda to confirm the location and start time of the meeting. Meetings are typically held at the Richmond City Council’s chambers, 440 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond, with a private session at 5 p.m. and public session at 6:30 p.m. However, sometimes the time and location changes, especially if a high-profile issue is at hand.
