INSTRUCTIONS FOR SPEAKING ON AGENDA ITEMS

The following are in accordance with the Meeting Procedures adopted by the County Board:

A. Public Comment Period: Held at Saturday Regular Meetings at 8:30 a.m. The purpose of this category is to alert the Board of items not on that day’s agenda, already decided, or scheduled for future hearings. Submit a speaker slip to the Clerk; you have up to 2 minutes to speak; only one speaker per topic will be heard. Print a Public Comment Speaker Slip.

B. Consent Agenda: Items removed on Saturday, no earlier than 9 a.m., will be heard at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday. This will automatically remove the item from the Consent Agenda and carry it over to the following Tuesday Recessed Meeting for public testimony (no speakers will be heard on Saturday). Submit a speaker slip on Saturday, identifying all the Consent Agenda item number(s) you wish to address on one slip; at the Tuesday meeting, individuals and organizations have up to 3 minutes to speak on all matters. (Example: if you sign-up to speak on two items, you are called one time to speak a maximum of three minutes on both items.); speakers are heard in a group before the Board begins discussing the removed Consent Agenda items; additional speakers may sign-up to testify on the previously removed items at the Tuesday recessed meeting by submitting a speaker slip by 6:30 p.m. Print a Consent Agenda Speaker Slip.

C. Regular Hearing: Items heard no earlier than 9 a.m. on Saturday, and no earlier than 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday. Carefully check the agenda. Matters may be scheduled for hearing at the Saturday regular meeting or the prescheduled Tuesday recessed meeting. Submit a speaker slip to the Clerk before the first speaker on your item is called; no slips will be accepted after that time; individuals may speak for a maximum of 2 or 3 minutes per agenda item; representatives of civic organizations may speak for a maximum of 2, 3, or 5 minutes. (The 5 minute slot is reserved for civic organizations.); 2 minute speakers are called first; 3 minute speakers second; and, finally, 5 minute speakers. In each category, speakers will be called in the order in which slips are received. Print a Regular Hearing Speaker Slip.

Speaker slips may be downloaded in advance of the meeting. (see the above Speaker Slip links.) You must hand the slip to the Clerk in the Board Room the day of the hearing. No slips are accepted in advance of the meeting.

Written materials should be handed directly to the Clerk. Oral testimony should not duplicate written statements. When submitting materials, please provide 8 copies for the Board, staff, and the public record.See also:
