The City Council and advisory boards and commissions meet in the Council Chamber at Soldotna City Hall.
Types of Meetings
Regular Meetings are the regularly scheduled meetings of the City Council and the advisory boards and commissions.
Work Sessions may be scheduled on occasion to discuss subjects and provide direction to administration in a less formal setting; no actions are taken in a work session. Work sessions are open to the public. The Council, boards or commission may choose whether or not to take public comments during a work session.
Special Meetings may be scheduled to act on time sensitive items that require attention prior to the next regular business meeting. Typically a special meeting follows the same format as a regular meeting, but will only have the specific item/topic being discussed on the agenda.
In response to Governor Dunleavy’s Mandate-011: All City facilities are closed to the public, essential personnel are the only persons entering these facilities.
How to listen to a City Council Meeting: City Council Meetings can be streamed live during the meeting from the City Website at soldotna.org/streaming, then select “Streaming Live” from the drop down menu. If you missed a meeting and wish to listen after, from the same web-page, select “Recorded” from the drop down menu.
How to provide written testimony: Written testimony is highly encouraged, written comments on a specific agenda item that are received one-hour before the meeting begins will be posted on the City Website as an additional item to that agenda item. Written comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any comments received after the one hour deadline will be posted after the meeting.

You will be able to hear the meeting through the telephone line; however, your line in will be muted. Once the meeting reaches a public comment portion of the agenda, the line will be unmuted and the Clerk will ask if there is anyone on the line who wishes to speak to the specific agenda item currently before the Council.
Please identify if you would like to speak by stating your first name only, if more than one person states their name at this time, the Clerk will try to identify who spoke first and call on that person.
Once called on, please clearly identify yourself for the record, by stating your first name, last name and then spelling your last name. Once you have identified yourself your three minutes for testimony will begin
Please contact the City Clerk’s Office at email@example.com if you have additional questions regarding telephonic participation. Thank you.
