Public Input During Meetings

Anyone wishing to give public input should call in advance to confirm the scheduled time of public input. Sometimes due to rescheduling of agenda items, public input can be moved an hour before or after the scheduled time. It is a good idea to plan on arriving an hour before the scheduled time for public input. The following rules apply:

  • Persons attending meetings of the DDTP Administrative or Advisory Committeess shall conduct themselves with dignity, courtesy, and respect toward the Committee, agency staff, and other persons in attendance. Disorderly conduct will not be tolerated.
  • Maximum time allowed is determined by the Chair, but generally shall not exceed 10 minutes per individual.
  • Testimony will be relevant to the topic, shall be civil, and devoid of personal attacks as determined by the Chair.
  • Any person who willfully disrupts any meeting, as determined by the Chair, will be asked to leave the meeting.
