How to Speak at a Commission Meeting

County Commission meetings are held the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. The meetings begin at 3 p.m. in the County Commission Chambers located on the 5th floor of the Leon County Courthouse (301 South Monroe Street). Citizens have several opportunities to speak before the County Commission as and outlined on each meeting agenda:

 ·  Citizens to Be Heard on Non-Agendaed Items (Prior to General Business & Public Hearings)

Citizens are given a 3-minute time limit to address the Commission on issues which are not on the printed agenda.  As a matter of policy, and in the interest of equity and fairness to all citizens, the County Commission does not take action on issues raised during this segment of the meeting, but instead, refers such matters to the County Administrator or the County Attorney for resolution or presentation to the Commission at a later date.

·  General Business

Citizens are given a 3-minute time limit to address the Commission on items on the printed agenda.

·  Scheduled Public Hearing (6 p.m.)

Citizens are given a 3-minute time limit to address the Commission on matters requiring formal notification to the public, and open for public comment prior to Commission action.

·  Citizens to Be on Non-Agendaed Items (After General Business & Public Hearings)

Citizens are given a 3-minute time limit to address the Commission on issues which are not on the printed agenda.  As a matter of policy, and in the interest of equity and fairness to all citizens, the County Commission may take action on issues raised during this segment of the meeting, or refer such matters to the County Administrator or the County Attorney for resolution or presentation to the Commission at a later date.

Citizens that wish to address the Commission must complete a speaker's registration card which are available in the County Commission Chambers and submit it to the Board Secretary or Agenda Coordinator.
