Public Meeting NoticesIn accordance with State law, public meeting notices and agendas for all meetings of the Tempe City Council and all City of Tempe boards and commissions must be posted at least 24-hours in advance of the meeting.
The City of Tempe’s official posting board is located at Tempe City Hall, 31 East 5th Street, on the Garden level, located at the northwest side of the building. The posting board is viewable by the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Public meeting notices are also posted on the City’s website. Please be advised that only the City’s official posting board may be relied on for official postings, under the Open Meeting Law. A technological problem or failure that either prevents the posting of public notices on a website or that temporarily or permanently prevents the use of all or part of the website does not preclude the holding of the meeting, if the public body complies with all other public notice requirements. Results of any legal actions taken at the City Council meetings will be posted on the City’s website within 3 working days of the meeting.
