In an effort to create format and allow productivity of Council meetings, Council has adopted a set of Rules and Procedures which shall govern Council meetings. Upon calling the meeting to order, the presiding officer may explain the need to sign up for the comment period and ask if all those wishing to address the Council had an opportunity to sign up. Each speaker shall have five- (5) minutes to speak, however, the presiding officer may reduce the time limit down to three- (3) minutes if the number of speakers who have signed up would extend the time period beyond the thirty- (30) minutes scheduled for public comment. The Council President may resume public comment after adjourning Council's legislative meeting.
