Public Comments: Members of the public desiring to address the Oversight Board are requested to complete a pink speaker card indicating their name and address, and identifying the subject matter they wish to address. This card should be given to the Secretary prior to the start of the meeting. General comments are made during "Oral Communications," and should be limited to matters under consideration and/or what the Oversight Board has jurisdiction over. Persons wishing to address the Oversight Board regarding a Public Hearing matter will be called to the podium at the time the matter is being considered.
Manner of Addressing the Oversight Board: After being called by the Chair, you may approach the podium, it is requested that you state your name for the record, and proceed to address the Oversight Board. All remarks and questions should be addressed to the Oversight Board as a whole and not to individual Board Members or staff members. Any person making impertinent, slanderous, or profane remarks or who becomes boisterous while addressing the Oversight Board shall be called to order by the Chair. If such conduct continues, the Chair may order the person barred from addressing the Oversight Board any further during that meeting.
Time Limitation: Speakers must limit remarks for a total of three (3) minutes. When any group of persons wishes to address the Oversight Board on the same subject matter, the Chair may request a spokesperson be chosen to represent the group, so as to avoid unnecessary repetition. At the Oversight Board's discretion, a limit on the total amount of time for public comments during Oral Communications and/or a further limit on the time allotted to each speaker during Oral Communications may be set.
PLEASE SILENCE YOUR CELL PHONES DURING THE MEETING.
