City boards and committees are now meeting in-person with a virtual option available to the public. Individuals who would like to attend meetings in person can access City Hall from the Martin Street entrance during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  For meetings that occur after hours, visitors can access City Hall through the Police Department lobby entrance on Pierce Street. Individuals who are not fully vaccinated should continue to wear a mask during meetings and while in City Hall.

Virtual Option for the Public
Members of the public who prefer to attend meetings virtually may continue to do so and learn how to participate at www.bhamgov.org/participate.

Watching City Meetings
The community may also watch many City meetings on the local cable access channel and by web streaming on the City's Vimeo channel.  


The City Commission is advised by a number of public Board and Commissions, whose members are appointed by the City Commission.

Interested in Serving on a City Board?
The City of Birmingham boards and commissions help shape the future of our community by serving in an advisory capacity to the City Commission.  Those interested in serving in a voluntary capacity on a board or commission may submit an application to the Office of the City Clerk.  Applications will appear in the public agenda at which time, applicants will be interviewed by the City Commission. The commission will discuss recommendations,  may make nominations and vote on appointments.
