For discussion and information items, each speaker may speak up to three minutes, subject to the Council President’s determination of the time available for meeting management purposes, in addition to any time ceded by other members of the public who are present at the meeting and have submitted a speaker slip ceding them time.

Quasi-Judicial Items. Organized group presentations for quasi-judicial items will be allowed up to 15 minutes per side to speak either for or against an item for a total of 30 minutes. If more than one group on the same side requests an organized presentation, the 15 minutes will be divided between each group for that side.  Please contact the Project Manager as listed as the primary contact on the staff report for that item to indicate your desire to present.

Non-Agenda Public Comment

Every agenda for a regular Housing Authority meeting shall provide a period on the agenda for members of the public to address the Housing Authority on items of interest to the public that are not on the agenda but are within the jurisdiction of the Housing Authority. Non-Agenda Public Comment shall be subject to the exercise of the Council President’s discretion for a given agenda.

In order to ensure that the Housing Authority has time to consider all agenda items, Non-Agenda Public Comment on particular issues and for each individual speaker will be as follows:

Each speaker will be limited to two minutes. Speakers may not allocate their time to other speakers. If there are eight or more speakers on a single issue, the maximum time for the issue will be 16 minutes. The order of speaking generally will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis, however, priority may be given to speakers who have not addressed the legislative body during Non-Agenda Public Comment at the last regularly scheduled Housing Authority meeting. A member of the public may only provide one non-agenda comment per agenda.

In-Person Non-Agenda Public Comment
