Annapolis City Council Reverts Back to Virtual Meetings

The City of Annapolis has announced that Annapolis City Council meetings will return to virtual meetings through the 90-day State of Emergency (R 5-22), passed unanimously by the Council on January 10, 2022.

The return to virtual meetings will include City Council meetings, standing committee meetings and City Council work sessions. The public is invited to participate in public testimony by submitting testimony online and selecting the button that reads: “I’d like to deliver live testimony.” All meetings will be broadcast on City of Annapolis TV, Facebook.com/CityofAnnapolis and Youtube.com/CityofAnnapolis and through the City’s Legistar portal at annapolismd.Granicus.com.

City buildings will remain open. Visitors and City personnel must wear masks in City buildings. Masks are available in all City buildings. At this time, public-facing operations will continue in-person, including:

  • Finance Counter at 160 Duke of Gloucester
    Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • City Clerk (liquor permits) at 160 Duke of Gloucester
    Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Licenses & Permits counter (Planning and Zoning) at 145 Gorman Street
    Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Most Annapolis Board and Commission meetings have continued to meet virtually, but all will migrate to virtual meetings during the State of Emergency.
