Mill Valley's Webcasting and eComment Program for Public Meetings

The City of Mill Valley was one of the first local jurisdictions in Marin County to provide webcasting services for City Council, Planning Commission and Parks and Recreation meetings, launching its webcasting program for City Council meetings in 2010.

In 2011,the Mill Valley City Council introduced the City’s new eComment program which made it possible for internet users watching live City Council meeting webcasts to submit live public comments in real-time to the City Council.

The City is proud to have offered this service for the past 10 years and continues to encourage community members to use this alternative form of civic participation if they are not attending in-person City Council and/or other Board/Commission/Committee public meetings.

If you are interested in sending in an eComment, please read the following:

  • Please include the Agenda Item number you are addressing (or clarify if your eComment is for Public Open Time) in the subject line of your eComment. Please also include your name and address in the body of your eComment.
  • Each individual is limited to one eComment per Agenda Item. All additional eComments sent by the same individual for the same Agenda Item will not be read out loud during the meeting but will be recorded into the public record after the meeting has been adjourned.
  • Staff will read each eComment into the record for no longer than 2 minutes. Please limit your eComment to 200-250 words as this is the approximate word count of reading aloud for two minutes. All eComments will be included in their entirety in the public record after the meeting.
  • Please note there is a 20 second delay in the live webcast. All eComments may be submitted at any time during the live meeting and do not have to wait until the Mayor or Chair calls for public comment. In order to ensure that City staff receive your comment, please send your comment as early in the meeting as possible.
