Adoption of Resolution R-15-031, establishing Procedures for the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners' Meetings.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Section 125.01, Florida Statutes.

Background Discussion

At a work session on January 20, 2015, the Board of County Commissioners reached a consensus on changes to its meeting procedures relative to public comments.  Those changes have now been incorporated into a new procedures document that the Board is now being asked to formally adopt.

The County Attorney has taken this opportunity to "freshen" the document in a number of additional respects, to include an improved table of contents, a new unisex reference to the Board Chair throughout the document, the deletion of references to collegial bodies that no longer exist, and a variety of grammatical improvements.
