City Council Meetings
The Chowchilla City Council meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm
in the City Hall Council Chambers at 130 S. Second Street. To view or download the agendas and minutes click HERE.

City Council Town Hall September 8
Citizens are encouraged to attend a town hall meeting with the Chowchilla City Council on Thursday, September 8 at 6PM in the Chowchilla Senior Center at 820 W. Robertson Boulevard.

Town hall meetings are less formal than council meetings at City Hall. There is no set agenda other than to listen and talk with those in attendance. The forum gives residents the opportunity to have a more open dialogue with the entire council.

Any topic can be brought up for discussion. Citizens can engage their elected officials and City staff in conversations about current and possible future services, programs, construction projects, business issues, neighborhoods, housing, public safety, etc.

Chowchilla city government is participatory government where everyone can have a voice in how the City functions and responds to needs. This town hall meeting, along with other community outreach events, is a worthwhile opportunity for citizens to participate in planning the future of Chowchilla.
