How Do I Speak at a Town Council Meeting?

To make public comments during a Town Council meeting, a person 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 talk about agenda or non-agenda items, as long as the item is not on the agenda for public hearing.  Please refer to the link above for rules on the public comment period.
