The board welcomes your comments in person (at board meetings), in writing, and by telephone. In addition, there are Board Advisory Committees that are open to the public.
Speaking to the Board
Public comments are welcome at board meetings. Each agenda allows time for visitor comments at the beginning of the meeting, as well as during consideration of specific agenda items. Pursuant to Board Bylaw 9323, comments are limited to two minutes per individual and 30 minutes per agenda item to allow equal access and allow time for board discussion and action on items.
Public comment at special meetings of the board is limited to comments specific to items on that meeting's agenda. Comments on non-agendaized topics can be addressed at the next regularly scheduled board meeting.
