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.

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.

Consent Calendar

Items that remain on the “Consent Calendar” are voted on in one motion as a group. “Information” items are not discussed or acted upon at the Council meeting unless they are moved to “Action” or “Consent”. 

After hearing from public speakers regarding items remaining on the Consent Calendar, any Councilmember 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. 

For items removed from the Consent Calendar to the Action Calendar for additional public comment, at the time the matter is taken up during the Action Calendar, public comment will be limited to persons who have not previous addressed that item during the Consent Calendar related public comment period.
