Board of Trustees - Procedures

PUBLIC COMMENT PROCEDURES

In order to ensure that members of the public are provided a meaningful opportunity to address the Board on agenda items or non-agenda items that are within the Board’s jurisdiction, agenda items may be addressed either at the public comment portion of the agenda, or at the time the matter is considered by the Board. During the evening many of the Board members will be speaking on various subjects. It should be noted that each Board member expresses only his opinion and not the opinion of the entire Board. The Board shall limit the total time for each agenda item to 20 minutes. Individual speakers will be allowed 3 minutes to address the Board. The Board requests any person wishing to speak fill out a blue card and give it to the Secretary or Board President prior to the meeting.
