Forum Restrictions and Orderly Conduct of Business. The Board of

during its meetings. The presiding

disrupts the orderly, efficient or safe conduct of the meeting. Warnings against disruptive comments or
behavior may or may not be given prior to removal. The viewpoint of a speaker will not be
restricted, but reasonable restrictions may be imposed upon the time, place and
manner of speech. Irrelevant and unduly
repetitious statements and personal attacks which antagonize or incite others
are examples of speech that may be reasonably limited.
Responses to Public Comments. The County
Commission can deliberate or take action only if a matter has been listed on an
agenda properly posted prior to the meeting.
During the public comment period, speakers may address matters listed or
not listed on the published agenda. The
Open Meeting Law does not expressly prohibit responses to public comments by
the Commission. However, responses from
Commissioners to unlisted public comment topics could become deliberation on a
matter without notice to the public. On
the advice of legal counsel and to ensure the public has notice of all matters
the Commission will consider, Commissioners may choose not to respond to public
comments, except to correct factual inaccuracies, ask for County staff action
or to ask that a matter be listed on a future agenda. The Commission may do this either during the
public comment item or during the following item: “*Commissioners’/Manager’s Announcements,
Requests for Information, Topics for Future Agendas and Statements Relating to
Items Not on the Agenda”.
