4. Board Policy 0169.1 Public Participation at Board Meetings
0169.1 Public Partic. at Bd Mtings Pk.pdf

General Counsel Gibbs read the executive summary.


Board members had the following suggestions for change:

  • Public comment on information items will be heard during the public comment on agenda items.
  • Refine the language on signs to make sure signs are not so tall that it obstructs view.


Mr. Susin asked about prioritizing certain groups/individuals such as BFT, 1010, students, and women with small children and allowing them to speak first.  Board consensus was not in favor of making anyone a priority.  It was decided that it would be acceptable to make a motion to move speakers up depending on the circumstances.


It was agreed to add a part about speakers not being able to yield his/her time to someone else.


There was some discussion about large umbrellas being brought into the Board room.  General Counsel Gibbs will work with law enforcement on language regarding umbrellas.
