Virtual City Meetings

How do I attend?

Beginning in March of 2020, the City of West Richland implemented a virtual meeting policy in response to the Governor’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” Order. The City will continue to hold its board, commission and council meetings virtually until Benton County enters Phase 3 of the “Safe Start, Stay Healthy” order.

The City utilizes Zoom for its virtual meeting platform. This program creates a meeting ID for its attendees to use to identify which virtual meeting they will attend. The City posts this link on the agenda page on the City website.

For the Planning Commission:
