Work Sessions:
Work sessions are intended to provide opportunities for Commissioners to study issues, gather and analyze information and clarify questions. No votes are conducted during work sessions. These sessions are open to the public but are not the appropriate forum for public comment.

Public Comments; Preservation of Order and Decorum.

  • The City Manager shall note on the agenda, and the Mayor shall inform members of the public that no speaker shall have the right to address the Board of Commissioners for more than four minutes on any particular item. Any deviation from this rule must be approved by the consensus of a majority of the Board.
  • Each person addressing the City Commission shall approach the podium, shall give his or her name and address in an audible tone of voice. All remarks shall be addressed to the City Commission as a body, and not to any member thereof. All speakers, including City Commission shall be recognized by the Mayor. No person, other than members of the City Commission and the person having the floor shall be permitted to enter into any discussion, either directly or through members of the City Commission. No questions shall be asked to individual Commission members, except through the Mayor. Any person making personal, impertinent, or slanderous remarks, or who shall become boisterous while addressing the City Commission may be requested to leave the meeting and may forthwith be barred from further attendance at that meeting.
  • The Mayor shall preserve order and decorum, and shall prevent attacks on personalities or the impugning of motives of Commission members or others, and shall prevent digression from the question under discussion. The Mayor shall ensure that no boisterous conduct, such as cheering, clapping, or the like, shall be permitted during debate. The Chief of Police or his or her designate shall be the sergeant-at-arms of the City Commission.
