ADDRESS THE BOARD regarding agenda items

Metro’s Board recognizes the importance of public participation, appreciates input from community members, and is committed to conducting its meetings in a productive and efficient manner. The intent of public comment should be to share thoughts on topics related to Metro business and therefore, to help Metro make better decisions.

Community members are permitted to address the board during any meeting regarding matters on the agenda that are being considered or discussed by the board, subject to the rules of Metro. 

Address the Board regarding other matters

If you’d like to address the Board at a regularly scheduled meeting about a matter related to Metro, other than an item on the agenda, you may do so during a designated period for oral comments not related to any agenda resolution or action item.

Speakers will be limited to two minutes each to allow others to speak and will be asked to be courteous in their language and presentation, refraining from repetitious, profane or irrelevant comments. All documents read before the Board must be submitted to the recording secretary and will be made a permanent part of the meeting record.
