Rules and Procedures for Commission Meetings

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.

Appeals and Record of Proceedings:
If any person decides to appeal any decision made by the Board of Commissioners with respect to any matter considered at this meeting, he/she will need a record of the proceedings, and that for such purpose, he or she may need to ensure a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based. The City of Tarpon Springs does not furnish verbatim transcripts. Interested parties should make necessary arrangements for the verbatim transcript in advance.
