City of Bentonville logo

Bentonville...The Bentonville City Council will be conducted on March 24, 2020.

Due to health concerns related to COVID-19, and the current Federal recommendations to avoid gatherings of 10 or more people, some or all of the members of the City Council, as well as City staff members, may attend this meeting by phone or other remote means. There is currently no provision allowing for the public to attend the meeting by electronic means, but the Community Development Building will be open for the public to attend. Those that do attend will be asked to watch the meeting from the building’s lobby.  Attendees will only be allowed into Council chambers to make a public comment or to speak during any public hearing on the agenda.  Those who do attend should observe the CDC recommendations concerning hygiene and social distancing (keeping at least 6 feet away from other persons present at the meeting).  Moreover, no one should attend this meeting if they are experiencing any type of illness involving a fever, sneezing or coughing.  

Those wishing to make public comments who do not want to attend the meeting may do so in written form, submitted by email to cc.comments@bentonvillear.com  by at least 4:30 p.m. on the day of the meeting. Those comments will be distributed to the members of the Council and the Mayor.

Future Planning Commission meetings will also be conducted with the same options for remote attendance and public comments. Public comment for Planning Commission meetings will be received at planning@bentonvillear.com.
