The Board values public comment as an important component of effective governance of the District and welcomes it through in-person and electronic methods.
Work Session: The Board may choose to accept public comment on work session agenda items at the end of their discussion. Those who wish to address the Board regarding a work session item are asked to complete the public comment card and state their name and address at the beginning of their remarks. Visitors are asked to limit their remarks to three minutes.
Regular Meeting: The Board welcomes opinions and information from the public about District-related issues at Board meetings. Upon arrival at the meeting, please submit a comment card at the sign-in table. Speakers will have 3 minutes to speak. When invited to the podium, first state your name and if you live within the District. If there are questions to be answered, follow up will occur after the meeting. Due to time constraints, dialogue is not part of the public comment opportunity at meetings.
If you wish to share written materials or letters related to in-person comments must be submitted to email@example.com at least 48 hours before the meeting to allow for review prior to the meeting. Otherwise, written materials will be provided to the Board following the meeting, which may be after Board action.
Email Input: To contact District staff and Board of Director members, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Addresses for each Director are here. Note: input submitted electronically becomes a public record; however, it is not entered into the Board meeting record if it relates to an agenda topic. If you wish to submit public comment for a Board meeting, please join us for in-person public comment.
The Board may meet in executive session pursuant to state statutes. Executive sessions are closed to all members of the public except for representatives of the news media.
