Individuals, organizations, groups or factions who desire to appear before the Board of Trustees to be heard on a subject pending before the Board must complete a public comment form specifying the matter on which they wish to be heard. Public comment forms must be submitted no later than 11:00 a.m. on the business day preceding the Board meeting.
Public comment will only be taken on agenda items before the Board. A maximum of 15 minutes will be set aside during the plenary meeting for public comment. Organizations, groups or factions must designate one representative to speak on behalf of the whole. Public comment will generally be limited to a maximum of 2 minutes per speaker. If a large number of people wish to speak, the Chair may shorten the time provided to each speaker.
