ADJOURN

PUBLIC COMMENT & DECORUM

The City Council desires to allow a maximum opportunity for public comment.  However, the business of the City must proceed in an orderly, timely manner. The purpose of a Council meeting is to conduct the City’s business; it is not a public forum. The Open Public Meetings Act does not require that members of the public be allowed to participate or speak. 

 

Speakers will be allotted 3 minutes per individual, unless revised by the Mayor. In-person comments shall be made from the microphone, first giving the speaker’s name and address.  When there are 30 seconds remaining a yellow light will alert you to summarize your comments. At the end of your comments, the light will turn red and you will hear a beep signifying the end of your comment period.  Anyone making “out of order” comments may be subject to removal from the meeting.

 

Public comment may be made remotely via Zoom or by phone during designated portions of the meeting. To speak during the meeting, press the Raise Hand button near the bottom of your Zoom window or press *9 on your phone. Please refrain from raising your hand until the Mayor has announced that he has opened the public comment portion of the meeting. Your name or the last three digits of your phone number will be called out when it is your turn to speak. When using your phone to call in, you may need to press *6 to unmute yourself. All speakers will have up to three minutes to speak.

 

Instead of speaking live, you may submit comments in writing by email before the meeting. Your comments must be provided to the City Clerk by 3:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting. All written comments must be able to be read in 3 minutes or less to be included in the record and must state “FOR PUBLIC COMMENT” in the subject line of the email. In addition, comments must include the name and address of the person submitting the comments. Email comments to cityclerk@gigharborwa.gov. Written comments will be read during the appropriate agenda item.

 

All remarks shall be addressed to the Council as a body and not to any specific councilmember. All speakers shall be courteous in their language and deportment and shall not engage in or discuss or comment on personalities or indulge in derogatory remarks or insinuations with regard to any councilmember, the Mayor, or any member of the staff or the public.  

 

There will be no demonstrations during or at the conclusion of any public comment. These guidelines are intended to promote an orderly system of holding a public meeting, to give every person an opportunity to be heard and to ensure that no individuals are embarrassed by voicing their opinions

 

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES (ADA) ACCOMMODATIONS

ADA accommodations can be provided upon request. Those requiring special accommodations should contact the City Clerk at (253) 853-7613 or cityclerk@gigharborwa.gov at least 24 hours prior to the meeting.
