The Santa Clarita City Council will hold special and regular meetings at City Hall on Tuesday, November 24, and hear public comments from citizens virtually via Zoom.

The special meeting, set to begin at 4:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall, will begin with public participation for items on the agenda.

A closed session for a conference with legal counsel regarding anticipated litigation relating to a letter from Neighborhood Elections Now, a Santa Clarita Valley voter group, calling for the city to abolish at-large elections and create single-member districts.

After an unrelated employee performance evaluation, Councilmembers will recess to a closed session in the Century Room, to be followed by an open session in which the city attorney will make an announcement.
