There are three public comment periods during each regular meeting of the Board of Supervisors: 1) at the end of the 3 p.m. work session; 2) at the 6 p.m. session following recognitions and new business; and 3) at the end of the 6 p.m. session following public hearings.
Each citizen comment period shall be limited to 15 minutes and each speaker may not exceed three minutes. Citizens may only speak once per meeting during the citizen comment periods. Comments must be germane to the services or policies of the county. No citizen shall speak on any matter of business that is a subject on the board's agenda for that day. Citizens may not yield time to other speakers. Any person desiring to speak shall sign up at the meeting prior to the afternoon or evening session. At the beginning of the citizen comment period, the clerk will read the names and comments will be given in the order of the sign-up sheet. Each citizen comment period will end after 15 minutes, regardless of the number of people who have signed up to speak.
Persons speaking before the board will not be allowed to:
- Campaign for public office;
- Promote private business ventures;
- Use profanity or vulgar language; or
- Address pending litigation or matters to be addressed at that meeting.
If you would like to speak during the Public Comment Period, please contact Janice Blakley, Clerk to the Board of Supervisors, at 748-1200 or email@example.com.
