Agenda Item #74
Proposed changes to the Public Comments portion of the Board of County Commissioners' meeting procedures
Contact and/or Presenter Information
Mitchell O. Palmer, County Attorney, extension 3750.
Motion to adopt Resolution R-16-011, re-adopting Procedures for the Board of County Commissioners' Meetings.
Section 125.01, Florida Statutes.
The County Attorney has prepared, for the Board's consideration, revisions to Section 5.3.1 of the Board's meeting procedures document. The revisions call for citizens' comments relative to matters for future consideration to be taken up near the end of Board meetings, as opposed to near the beginning.
Should the Board be favorably inclined, the County Attorney recommends a wholesale re-adoption of the Board's procedures (with Section 5.3.1 reflecting the only substantive change), so as to avoid the need to reference multiple enactments when consulting the procedures.
Proposed Resolution R-16-011 and the new procedures document are attached hereto.
