Meetings & Minutes

City Council meetings are held twice monthly, the first and third Monday of each month at 7:00 pm. The first Monday meeting will be reserved for in-depth Council discussions on upcoming actionable items, as well as updates and presentations from various City Departments. The second meeting will be reserved for action agenda items.

The meetings are in the City Council Chambers on the second floor of the Ely Community Center/City Hall at 1570 Rowley Street. An elevator is available for access. Agendas and minutes will be posted on this site, at City Hall and other locations in Ely. Meetings will also be accessible online via Zoom and Facebook live.
