The Town Council is committed to allowing members of the public an opportunity to offer comments and suggestions for the efficient and effective administration of government. In addition to public hearings, a public comment period is set aside for the purpose of receiving such comments and suggestions. Public Comments periods are held during the Regular Town Council Meetings on the first Tuesday of each month. All comments and suggestions addressed to the Town Council during the public comment period shall be subject to procedures adopted by Town Council on July 3, 2018, which can be found here.
How Do I Speak at a Town Council Meeting?
To make public comments during a Town Council meeting, an individual must register on a sign-up sheet located on the Town Clerk's desk at the front of Town Council Chambers. Sign-up sheets will be available twenty (20) minutes before the start of the meeting. No one will be allowed to have their name placed on the list by telephone or email request to town staff.
Speakers will be acknowledged by the Mayor in the order in which their names appear on the sign-up sheet. Speakers will address the Council from the podium at the front of the room and will begin their remarks by stating their name and address. Each speaker will have three (3) minutes to make their remarks. It is recommended that groups or delegations select their spokesperson in advance of the meeting.
Speakers may address agenda or non-agenda items, provided that the item is not already on the agenda for public hearing. Please refer to the link above for restrictions on the public comment period.
