Receive Public Verbal Comments Regarding Closed Session Items

This communication item is included on the agenda of each regular board meeting to provide an opportunity for citizens to make suggestions or identify concerns about matters affecting the district, or to suggest an item be scheduled for a future agenda. The board may not have complete information available to answer questions and may refer specific concerns to the staff for appropriate attention. The Board discusses personnel matters only in closed session. Should members of the public have a concern or complaint about District personnel, the Board requests that this be addressed through its complaint procedure; the form is available to the public with the agendas by the entrance to the board meeting room, rather than by comments during the opportunity for public comment. Should members of the public nevertheless discuss personnel matters during the opportunity for public comment, the Board will not respond to questions or comment on such matters. Speakers are cautioned that under California law, no person is immune from liability for making intentionally false or defamatory comments regarding any person simply because those comments are made at a public meeting.

Please limit comments to three minutes per individual. Total time for public input is limited to 45 minutes.
