BASIC CITY COUNCIL MEETING RULES

AGENDAS - The City Council meets Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 A.M. The agendas for City Council meetings contain a brief general

description of those items to be considered at the meetings. Council Agendas are available in the Office of the City Clerk, Council and Public Services Division, Room 395, City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, and on the City's website at lacity.org; or lacouncilcalendar.com
Tagged Passions:council, streets, services, Public Works, and public works

Ten (10) members of the Council constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. The Council may consider an item not listed on the agenda only

if it is determined by a two-thirds (10) vote that the need for action arose after the posting of an Agenda. Some items on the agenda may be approved without any discussion, however, any item may be called special by a Councilmember. If an item is called special it will be held until the remainder of the items on the Council agenda have been acted on by the Council. An item may also be called special if a member of the public has requested to speak on the item and a public hearing was not previously held.
Tagged Passions:business and hearing

The City Clerk will announce the items to be considered by the Council, however items will be grouped. For example, all items for which required

public hearings have not previously been held are listed in one section on the printed agenda. The Council President will ask if any Councilmember or member or the public wishes to speak on one or more of these items. If anyone wishes to speak on an item, it will be called special . The remaining items in this section will be voted on by Council with one roll call vote.
Tagged Passions:council and hearing

PUBLIC INPUT AT CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS - An opportunity for the public to address the Council on agenda items for which public hearings have not been

held will be provided at the time the item is considered or during the Multiple Agenda Item Comment period. Members of the public who wish to speak on items shall be allowed to speak for up to one minute per item up to a total of three minutes per meeting. The Council has determined that a cumulative total of 20 minutes is a reasonable minimum amount of time for the Multiple Agenda Item segment of each regular meeting.
Tagged Passions:council and hearing

The Council will also provide an opportunity for the public to speak on public interest items. Each speaker shall be limited to one minute of general

public comment each regular meeting for a cumulative total of ten (10) minutes. The Council shall not discuss or take action relative to any general public comment.
Tagged Passions:council

If you wish to provide documents to the full Council for consideration on an item, please present the Sergeant-At-Arms with 35 copies. Otherwise,

your materials will simply be added to the official record.
Tagged Passions:council and materials

COUNCIL DISCUSSION AND TIME LIMITS - Councilmembers requesting to address the Council will be recognized by the Council President in the order

requested. For any item, the Chairperson of the Committee, or the maker of the original motion, or the member calling a matter special shall have up to six (6) minutes to discuss the item. All other Councilmembers may speak up to three (3) minutes each on the matter. After all members desiring to speak on a question have had an opportunity to be heard once, the time for each Member desiring to speak again shall be limited to a maximum of three (3) minutes.
Tagged Passions:recognition and council

A motion calling the previous question may be introduced by any member during a Council debate. If adopted, this motion will terminate debate on a

matter and the Chair will instruct the Clerk to call the roll on the matter.
Tagged Passions:council

VOTING AND DISPOSITION OF ITEMS - Most items require a majority vote of the entire membership of the Council (8 members). Items which have not been

discussed in a Council Committee and have been placed directly on the agenda will require 10 votes to consider. Once considered, these items will normally require eight (8) affirmative votes to be adopted. Ordinances require a unanimous vote (at least 12 members must be present) in order to be adopted on first consideration. If an ordinance does not receive the necessary unanimous vote, it is laid over one calendar week. The votes required for approval on second consideration vary and depend upon the type of ordinance, but a typical ordinance requires eight (8) affirmative votes upon second consideration.
Tagged Passions:ordinance, council, and voting

When debate on an item is completed, the Chair will instruct the Clerk to call the roll . Every member present must vote for or against each item;

abstentions are not permitted. The Clerk will announce the votes on each item. Any member of Council may move to reconsider any vote on any item on the agenda, except to adjourn, suspend the Rules, or where an intervening event has deprived the Council of jurisdiction, providing that said member originally voted on the prevailing side of the item. The motion to reconsider shall only be in order once during the meeting, and once during the next regular meeting. The member requesting reconsideration shall identify for all members present the agenda number, Council file number and subject matter previously voted upon. A motion to reconsider is not debatable and shall require an affirmative vote of eight (8) members

of the Council.

Tagged Passions:council

When the Council has failed by sufficient votes to approve or reject an item, and has not lost jurisdiction over the matter, or has not caused it to

be continued beyond the next regular meeting, the item is continued to the next regular meeting for the purpose of allowing the Council to again vote on the matter.
Tagged Passions:council

The City Council rules provide that all items adopted by the Council will not be presented to the Mayor, or other designated officer by the City

Clerk until the adjournment of the regular Council meeting following the date of the Council action. A motion to send an item forthwith if adopted by ten (10) votes, suspends these rules and requires the City Clerk to forward the matter to the Mayor, or other officer, without delay.

RULE 16 MOTIONS - Council Rule No. 16, in part, allows a member to send an item directly to the Council without it having to go to a Council

Committee first, by giving the City Clerk a motion (seconded by an additional member) during a Council session to be placed on the next regular available Council agenda.
