The Community Board's general meetings are run according to Roberts Rules of Order. While the public is encouraged to attend and observe Community Board proceedings, only Board Members can discuss and vote on motions before it. The Community Boards were created by City Charter, and their roles and responsibilities are defined in Chapters 69 and 70. They must operate within all applicable City, State and Federal laws that govern public bodies. CB6 also has its own set of by-laws.

We encourage the public to attend the Community Board's various Public Hearings, committee meetings, informational meetings and special events to participate actively in the items before the Community Board at the grassroots level. All meetings of the Community Board are open to the public, and are posted on our online Calendar.

The CB6 District Office has two primary functions - to process citizen complaints and requests for services, and to provide administrative support for the Community Board. The District Office maintains all the public records of the activities of the Community Board and is responsible for setting up and preparing notices of all Community Board meetings and functions. Additionally, the District Office reviews Street Activity Permit applications for street fairs, block parties and other street closures, monitors the delivery of municipal services and, in general, acts as a one-stop shopping point for information and referrals pertaining to all City government matters. The District Office is a professional, non-partisan office. There are no fees for any services provided.
Any complaint that involves a municipal service can be reported to the District Office.
We strongly encourage the use of the City's 311 system for reporting routine maintenance requests including but not limited to potholes, tree pruning, missing or damaged signs, street light malfunctions, and clogged catch basins.
