Frequently Asked Questions

Can I speak at a Board meeting? If so, how?

All persons desiring to speak on any Board item, including the Consent agenda, Closed Session or during the general public comment period are asked to fill out a “Board Appearance Request Form” and submit to the Clerk of the Board prior to the start of the Board item. Each individual speaker is limited to a MAXIMUM of three (3) minutes. 

What is the consent agenda?

The consent agenda is part of the Board's regular meeting agenda, but the items listed on this portion of the agenda are scheduled for consideration as a group. The staff recommendations will be approved as outlined within the staff report. Any Supervisor may request an item be withdrawn from the consent agenda to permit discussion or change the recommended course of action for an item.
