It's back to remote meetings for the Yakima City Council. Council members say they're going back to using Zoom because of an increase in COVID-19 cases in Yakima. You can watch the meetings live on Y-PAC, Charter Spectrum Channel 194, on Zoom, and by livestream on the City website.


“The City is adapting to the COVID-19 emergency as it evolves,” said City Communications & Public Affairs Director Randy Beehler.  “The return to Zoom meetings is a reasonable next step in the City’s ongoing efforts to continue to provide vital services to the community while helping contain the spread of COVID-19.” You can comment remotely on meeting agenda items. Just go to the city website. Click Public Comment | City Council to find information and requirements for signing up to provide public comment on agenda items. The link includes a Public Comment Request Form.


Regular City Council meeting agendas are typically available the Friday afternoon prior to the Tuesday meeting. Meeting agendas are posted online at Agendas and Minutes | City Council (

Yakima City Council meetings were held via telephone and Zoom after the state instituted safety protocols in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Yakima City Hall re-opened to the public in June 2021 when COVID-19 cases declined in Yakima County and around the state.
