How do I bring an issue before City Council?

There are several ways to bring something before council:

  1. Contact the City Clerk’s Office
  2. Talk to one of your council members or the mayor
  3. Speak during "Citizen Comment Period" at a City Council meeting
  4. Click on the contact information for the Council member to leave an email message.

The best way to bring an issue to council's attention is to contact the City Clerk’s Office at 540-942-6669 or stop by the office at: 503 W. Main St. Suite 208 Waynesboro, VA 22980

The city clerk may be able to address your matter, refer it to the appropriate council person or city manager, or refer it to the appropriate city representative.

The City Council agendas are prepared and distributed on Thursdays before meetings. Copies are provided to council and are available for viewing on the city’s website.
