2023 Town Council Meetings
RULES FOR CITIZEN PARTICIPATION AT PUBLIC MEETINGS:
TOWNSHIP COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING – STANDING RULES
In addition to Public Comment during the Second Reading and Public Hearing on proposed Township ordinances and in addition to Citizen Comment during the Public Portion on proposed resolutions, Township Council has opted to include a Public Portion of the Regular Township Council Meeting. Citizen Comment is offered after the approval of the Expenditure List and before Staff and Professional Comments. Residents shall be given approximately 5 minutes to share their thoughts.
Upon recognition by the Mayor, speakers shall come to the microphone and state their name and address for the record. All persons are expected to engage in respectful and orderly discourse. Persons entering into personal, impertinent, or slanderous discourse or persons who become boisterous or unruly during the discussion, shall, at the discretion of the Mayor or at the objection of Township Council members, forfeit their remaining time to address Council.
Statements to Council or the Administration should be addressed through the Mayor. A reply to a statement or a question should not be the impetus for debate. Concerns that cannot be addressed immediately will be referred to the departments listed below.
Although your Township Council requests residents to respectfully acknowledge the Standing Rules of the regular Council meeting, with the consent of the majority of Town Council, deviation from the Standing Rules may be permitted.
The names, emails and telephone numbers of Township Council representatives are available online and in the Township Clerk’s office for any resident who wishes to contact a member of council outside the purview of the Township council meeting.
