City Meetings

About Our Meetings

Official City meetings are open to the public and members are encouraged to participate in their government. Agendas, minutes, and staff reports from 2014 to the present are posted on this site. If you have any questions, please contact the Clerk of the Council office at (714) 647-6520.

City Council Meetings

The City Council meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month. Regular Closed Sessions begin at 5:00 p.m. and the Regular Open Meeting at 5:45 p.m. (or immediately following the Closed Session Meeting). For Special meetings, please see the agenda as posted.  Meetings are broadcast live and archived for your convenience.

To watch or listen only:

COVID-19 Measures: In response to Governor Newsom’s latest action on COVID-related closures statewide and for counties on the State’s targeted engagement list, the Santa Ana City Council reverted back to virtual meetings as of July 21, 2020.

In an ongoing effort to protect public health and prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and to ensure the public’s right to fully participate in providing meaningful public comments, the City Council will meet via teleconference and there will be no in-person public meeting location. The public is advised of the following:

Public comments will be held during the beginning of the meeting for ALL comments on agenda and non-agenda items, except for public hearings during Regular Council meetings. Comments for public hearings will take place after the hearing is opened. This is being done to respect the time constraints of residents who cannot stay tuned late into the evening to comment on items that they feel strongly about. For Special meetings, individuals may make a comment only on agenda items.


As we ring in the New Year, we would like to introduce an innovative agenda management system, PrimeGov.  We realize this will be new for us all and want to make the transition as easy as possible.
