Due to the current pandemic crisis and social distancing guidelines in the United States of America and Kentucky, we, the City of Fulton, Kentucky, will be conducting City Commission meetings using a video conferencing app called "Zoom" or "Zoom Cloud". The public is welcome to view or participate as this is a public meeting although in a different manner than the normal procedure.

Another way to view and participate in the videoconference meeting is to enter the link for the meeting, https://zoom.us/j/2583657014, and when prompted, the meeting ID to enter is 258-365-7014.
Once the meeting screen is accessed, choices are available for "speaker" view or "gallery" view, enabling the viewer to see the individual speaking, and/or all meeting participants, respectively. Another function available on the screen is a "raise your hand" feature, or a "chat" feature, which will be available at the designated time, following the meeting's agenda, for participation, questions or concerns.
