About Work, Business and Executive Sessions

Work Session:
Work sessions are scheduled for the Board to receive and discuss information regarding district operations, projects and planning to aid in their decision-making process. The Board conducts its business during regular meetings to receive information and take action on district operations such as approving contracts, agreements, policies and procedures.

Business Session:
During a public meeting, the board may conduct a business session to make decisions, conduct business or direct action on behalf of the district. Board decisions can only be made in the business session with a motion and call for an open vote of each board member.

Executive Session:
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.

Public comment for board meetings

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: Public comment is scheduled at the beginning of each work session. 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. Public comment on Zoom will be taken in the order received by using the “raise hand” tool on Zoom. Visitors are asked to limit their remarks to three minutes. 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.

Business Meeting: On occasion, the board may elect to hear public comment in the regular meeting. The board may ask the public to listen to the staff presentation of an agenda item prior to hearing from the public. The Board welcomes opinions and information from the public about district-related issues at Board meetings. 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 board@bendparksandrec.org 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 board@bendparksandrec.org. Addresses for each Director are here.

Note: Input submitted electronically becomes a public record and can be subject to an open records request; however, it is not entered into the board meeting record unless requested. Please keep comments intended as part of the board meeting record pertinent to the topics of the agenda; otherwise all subjects are welcome as a communication to the board.
