Speaker's Rules

Please keep in mind the following when speaking:

  • Courtesy between the speaker and the audience is expected at all times
  • Speakers shall refrain from obscenity, vulgarity, and profanely cursing or swearing.
  • Every petition, communication, or address to the Board shall be in respectful language and is encouraged to be submitted in writing.
  • Public comments should be for the purpose of allowing members of the public to present any County business-related matter, which, in their opinion, deserves the attention of the Board. The public comment period shall not serve as a forum for debate with staff or the Board.
  • Citizens shall refrain from using words or statements, which, from their usual construction and common acceptance, are construed as insults or personal attacks which may have a tendency to cause an act of violence or a breach of the peace.

The Public Comment sections at the beginning and the end of the meetings are provided as a courtesy by the Board of Supervisors for citizens to address the Board on items not scheduled for a Public Hearing.

These Public Comment sections are not required by law.
