Additional meetings such as study sessions and special meetings may be called at the direction of the Mayor and Council. These meetings are scheduled on an as needed basis for the purpose of information and discussion and possible action. Public input is not usually taken at a study session as the meeting is for informational purposes only.
At each point in the meeting when it is appropriate for citizens to speak the Mayor will so indicate. Each citizen wishing to speak should approach the microphone and state your name for the record. All comments must be addressed to the Town Council as a whole and not to an individual Council Member and must be limited to three minutes or less. No person, other than the individual speaking, shall enter into the discussion without the Mayor’s permission.
State Law requires that Call to the Public be limited to discussions on Town issues which are on the Consent Agenda and/or issues which the Town can lawfully act upon at a future meeting. No discussion is permitted on issues over which the Town Council does not have the power to act in the future.
Remarks must be limited to three minutes or less and should only consist of general statements about the Town or the Town Council as a whole, and not personal attacks or direct arguments. If the issue you are raising is not listed on the agenda, State Law prohibits the Town council from discussing your issue, or even responding to your concern at this meeting.
At the conclusion of Call to the Public, individual members of the Town Council may respond to criticism made by those who have addressed the Council; ask staff to review the matter, or request that the matter be placed on a future agenda.
