Persons wishing to address the Council on matters not on the Council agenda during the initial ten-minute period for such comment, must submit a speaker card to the City Clerk in person at the meeting location and prior to commencement of that meeting. The remainder of the speakers wishing to address the Council on non-agenda items will be heard at the end of the agenda.

Public Comment on Consent Calendar and Information Items Only: The Council will take public comment on any items that are either on the amended Consent Calendar or the Information Calendar.  Up to three speakers will be entitled to two minutes each to speak in opposition to or support of a Consent Calendar Item.  The Presiding Officer will ask additional persons in the audience to stand to demonstrate their respective opposition to or support of the item.
 
In the event that there are more than three persons wishing to speak either in opposition to or support of a “Consent” item, the Presiding Officer will move the item to the beginning of the Action Calendar.  Prior to moving the item, the Presiding Officer will fully inform those persons in the audience of this process.

After hearing from public speakers regarding items remaining on the Consent Calendar, any Council Member may move any Information or Consent item to “Action”, however no additional items can be moved onto the Consent Calendar at that point.  Following this, the Council will vote on the items remaining on the Consent Calendar in one motion.
