The City Council meets Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10:00 am in the John Ferraro Council Chamber, Room 340, City Hall, 200 N. Spring St. (entrance on Main St.), Los Angeles, 90012. On the first Friday of every other month, the Council meeting is held at the Van Nuys Civic Center, as noted in the 2020 Van Nuys Meeting Schedule (pdf).

City Council members serve on a number of Council Committees, each of which is chaired by a City Councilmember. All Council matters are referred between the Council and Council Committees based on the adopted Council Committee Structure resolution (pdf). 

All Council and Council Committee meetings are open to the public, with the exception of "closed session" meeting items. Members of the public may comment on agenda items either at Council Committee meetings or Council meetings. If public comment on an agenda item is not heard in Committee, an opportunity for public comment will be provided during the Council meeting.
