City Council meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month starting at 6 pm.  Beginning in May 2018, the historic Council Chambers, where the Orange City Council meets, will be temporarily closed through the end of the year for a top-to-bottom remodel.  For more information on the project, please click here.  During this time, the City Council meetings will be held various locations around the City.

During the remodel, City Council meetings will not be able to be live-streamed. Replays of the Council Meetings will be available for viewing on Time Warner Channel 3, and on our City website, by 5:30 pm the Thursday immediately following each meeting.


August 14: 6 pm, Santiago Canyon College, 8045 E. Chapman Ave. Room H-106
