GENERAL RULES & PROCEDURES FOR PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AT
CITY OF BOYNTON BEACH COMMISSION MEETINGS

THE AGENDA:
There is an official agenda for every meeting of the City Commissioners, which determines the order of business conducted at the meeting.  The City Commission will not take action upon any matter, proposal, or item of business, which is not listed upon the official agenda, unless a majority of the Commission has first consented to the presentation for consideration and action.

  • Consent Agenda Items: These are items which the Commission does not need to discuss individually and which are voted on as a group.
  • Regular Agenda Items: These are items which the Commission will discuss individually in the order listed on the agenda.
  • Voice Vote: A voice vote by the Commission indicates approval of the agenda item.  This can be by either a regular voice vote with "Ayes & Nays" or by a roll call vote.

SPEAKING AT COMMISSION MEETINGS:
The public is encouraged to offer comment to the Commission at their meetings during Public Hearings, Public Audience, and on any regular agenda item, as hereinafter described.

City Commission meetings are business meetings and, as such, the Commission retains the right to impose time limits on the discussion on an issue.

  • Public Hearings: Any citizen may speak on an official agenda item under the section entitled "Public Hearings."
  • Public Audience: Any citizen may be heard concerning any matter within the scope of the jurisdiction of the Commission - Time Limit - Three (3) Minutes

ADDRESSING THE COMMISSION:
When addressing the Commission, please step up to either podium and state, for the record, your name and address.

DECORUM:
Any person who disputes the meeting while addressing the Commission may be ordered by the presiding officer to cease further comments and/or to step down from the podium.  Failure to discontinue comments or step down when so ordered shall be treated as a continuing disruption of the public meeting. An order by the presiding officer issued to control the decorum of the meeting is binding, unless over-ruled by the majority vote of the Commission members present.

Please turn off all pagers and cellular phones in the City Commission Chambers while the City Commission Meeting is in session.
