The Rockville Mayor and Council hold general business meetings on most Mondays.
Meetings are held at Rockville City Hall in the Mayor and Council Chambers on the third floor. The meetings are open to the public and are televised live (and on replay) on Rockville 11 on county cable systems.

Speakers are asked to keep their remarks to three minutes. Priority will be given to speakers who have signed up in advance by calling the City Clerk's Office at 240-314-8280 by 4:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting and those who are speaking on an agenda item.
