Denver City Council starts a half hour early today — at 5 p.m. — to allow for a public comment period. This is the first time that the Denver council has allowed time for the public to address the full body about any concern at all, as opposed to an item scheduled for a public hearing.

The city has an FAQ up about the rules and conditions and how to sign up here.

The most important bits: You get three minutes to speak. Sign-up closes at 4:30 p.m. today, so if you have something to say, email dencc@denvergov.org, call 720-337-2000 or talk to a member of the Legislative Services staff in the City & County Building, Room 451.

If you miss your chance today, City Council will hold public comment periods at the start of the first regularly scheduled business meeting of the month going forward. Sign-up will open at noon the previous Friday.
