(Comments will be heard on items that do not appear on the Agenda. The Public
Comment portion of the Agenda shall be subject to a twenty (20) minute limitation. A time
limit of five (5) minutes shall be imposed on each Speaker.
The purpose of having Public Comments as an Agenda item is to allow any person to
make his/her views known to the City Council upon any subject of general or public
interest. The Council recognizes that Public Comments are for the purpose of legitimate
inquiries and discussion by the Public, and not for the purpose of advancing arguments or
repetitious questions concerning matters which the Council believes to be closed or not
of general public concern.
The Council shall have the right during this period to decline to hear any person or subject
matter upon proper motion and majority vote by the Council. Each person wishing to speak
during the Public Comment portion of the Agenda must fill out a Public Comment Speaker
Card stating name, and the topic about which he/she wishes to speak as well as a sign-in
sheet, and give to the City Clerk at the Meeting itself.
The purpose of the Cards is to obtain the spelling of the name of the Speaker, and provide for
efficient meeting administration.
The order of speaking shall be based upon the order of sign-in with first person signing-in
speaking first and so forth. If the twenty (20) minutes has elapsed before all Speakers who
have signed up are allowed to speak, the City Council may elect to continue the time period.
However, if the City Council elects not to extend the time period those Speakers who signed
up but did not speak may if they so choose to be placed on the next Agenda under the Public
Comments Section and shall be placed at the top of the Sign-In Sheet in the same order they
were in from the previous Sign-In Sheet. All Speakers shall comply with these rules which
shall be posted at the Speaker Sign-In desk and rulings of the City Clerk.)
