All meetings of the Board and Board-appointed committees are open to the public.
In order for the Board to fulfill its obligation to complete the
planned agenda in an effective and efficient fashion, a maximum of 30
minutes of public participation may be permitted at each meeting.
Each person addressing the Board shall give his/her name and
address. If several people wish to speak, each person is allotted three
minutes until the total time of 30 minutes is used. During that
period, no person may speak twice until all who desire to speak have had
the opportunity to do so. Persons desiring more time should follow the
procedure of the Board to be placed on the regular agenda. The maximum
amount of time an individual will be permitted to address the Board
shall not exceed five minutes. The period of public participation may
be extended by a vote of the majority of the Board, present and voting.
Agendas are available to all those who attend Board meetings.
The section on the agenda for public participation shall be indicated.
