Citizen Appearance Guidelines

The following guidelines are designed to promote a fair and open process for the administration of public meetings.

Each speaker will be allowed three (3) minutes for comments to ensure sufficient time for all wishing to be heard.

State law provides that the board cannot take specific action, or discuss Citizen Appearance Request topics as these items do not meet the legal posting requirements.
