Attend Evans City Borough Council Meetings
Evans City Borough Council holds two (2) regular monthly meetings. In addition, Council occasionally may call Special Meetings to discuss specific topics. All meetings are open to the public, allowing residents to bring their concerns forward and voice their opinions regarding Borough matters. Public participation in these meetings is encouraged and valued by Council, as it brings to our attention a variety of issues within the Borough and allows us to effectively prioritize/manage how discretionary local tax dollars (and other funding) need to be allocated. All meetings are digitally audio-recorded and saved until the minutes of the meeting are approved.
Monthly Borough Council Meetings
Monthly Borough Council Meetings are held in person on the first Monday of the month at 7:00 PM in the Community Room at the Library located at 204 S. Jackson St, Evans City, PA. Meetings typically open with public comments and are followed by reports from various Officers, Committee leads, Commission members, Department directors, Authority liaisons, the Mayor, the Solicitor, and the Secretary. Old and new business items are discussed. Official motions are made and resolutions passed, assuming they have been advertised in the agenda and a quorum of council members is present. Borough Council Meetings typically include a follow-up Executive Session (not digitally audio-recorded) where only the Mayor, Council members, the Solicitor, and special invitees are allowed to participate in the discussion of more sensitive topics.
Monthly Agenda Setting Meetings
Agenda Setting Meetings are held virtually (via Zoom) on the Wednesday before the Council Meetings at 4:30 PM. Please contact the Borough Secretary for the meeting ID and password.
These meetings are to facilitate agenda development and public advertisement for the upcoming Borough Council Meeting. In accordance with the Pennsylvania Sunshine Laws, the agenda is publicly posted at least 24-hours in advance of the associated Borough Council meeting (note: website posting may lag physical posting at the Borough office).
Periodically, it may be necessary for Council to call Special Meetings to discuss a variety of pressing issues or to ensure the timely passage of resolutions. Special Meetings will be publicly advertised via an abbreviated agenda posting a minimum of 24 hours in advance. These meetings, too, may include an Executive Session.
