To allow the opportunity for all to speak, time limits have been set for speakers wishing to address the City Council. Under normal circumstances, time limits are:
- Public Comment (non-agenda items) – 3 minutes
- Applicant/appellant – 10 minutes
- Agenda items – 3 minutes
- Rebuttal by applicant/appellant – 5 minutes
However, if necessary to assure completion of Public Hearings and Other Matters, the presiding officer may establish shorter speaker time limits.
A timing/lighting system will be activated at the beginning of a presentation. The green light indicates the beginning of the time period; the yellow will appear when one minute remains; the red light will appear when time has lapsed.
