City Council

About Avon Lake City Council

The Council serves as the legislative body of the city: enacting laws, passing ordinances and resolutions, and looking out for the general needs and wellbeing of our community and our citizens. Our Council consists of seven elected officials: four ward-specific and three at-large councilpersons. Council meetings are twice a month, and all community members are encouraged to attend.

Council Meetings

Regular Council Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m., with the exception of the months of July and August, when Council meets on the second Monday of July and fourth Monday of August. Council and Collective Committee Agendas and Regular Council Meeting Minutes are posted on the City website and are all available to view or download.

Collective Committee Meetings

Collective Committee Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first and third Monday of each month. The purpose of the Collective Committee Meeting is to exchange information, to review Council Committee items, and to formulate the Regular Council Meeting Agenda.

Want to attend a meeting?

All Council and Collective Committee Meetings are open to the public and audience participation is permitted according to Council Rules. Unable to attend? We broadcast/stream all meetings live on ALC-TV (Spectrum - channel 1025, Breezeline Cable - channel 21, and Breezeline Stream - channel 2001), and on the City’s website and Facebook page.
