Meeting Resources

Digital copies of our meeting agenda, minutes and packets are posted to our website for public consumption the Friday before the Town Council meeting. All agenda items presented are thoroughly investigated by the staff so that Council is armed with the most comprehensive information before making decisions affecting you.

Regular meetings are noticed by posting the entire agenda in public places: Mountain Village and Meadows post offices, Mountain Village Police Department bulletin board, Town Hall bulletin boards, and here on this Web page. In the instance where Town Council calls an emergency or special meeting, we will post the announcement in the four public places stated above 24 hours prior to the meeting. Agendas are subject to change without notice.

Written Public Comment

Written communication from the public to Town Council is delivered in a number of ways: it is dropped off at Town Hall, faxed, mailed, emailed, and even handed to us on the street. Sometimes written communication addresses issues that are agendized for an upcoming Town Council meeting. In an effort to standardize the inclusion of all agenda-related written public comment in Town Council packets the following procedure has been instituted:

  1. Agenda-related written communications received in the mail, fax, hand delivered or via email will be directed to the Town Clerk’s Office and copies added to the Town Council packet.
  2. The deadline for communications to be included in the Town Council packet is noon the Thursday preceding the Town Council meeting.
  3. When written communication is received after the Town Council packet deadline, it will be forwarded to the deputy town clerk to email to Town Council and other affected parties; hard copies will be provided at the Town Council meeting. Such communications must be received by the deputy town clerk no later than 5 p.m. the day before the Town Council meeting.
  4. All communications related to planning issues are to be distributed in a similar manner as set forth above by the planner while also copying the Town Clerk’s Office.

When public comment is received on a matter that is determined to be quasi-judicial in nature, that comment will be entered in to the record by the town clerk as part of the complete record to be considered by Town Council.

Business & Government Activity Report (BaGAR)

The BaGAR Report provides Town Council and you a snapshot of municipal business on a monthly basis. It highlights departmental information and activities from the prior month just concluded, for the year-to-date, and for the year prior. The purpose isn’t to preclude the use of other reports, but rather utilize this information as a form of supplemental, easy-to-follow data and figures.
