Instructions: What to do if you see inappropriate and aggressive bahavior at the Commission meeting tonight.

First, important information regarding this meeting:
  • To watch this meeting Live Streaming use this link at 6:00 then look for “Video of Public Meetings” in right-hand column of the City’s website. If the video does not begin wait a few minutes and try again.
  • To review the agenda, with excerpts and highlights, use this link.
  • If you plan on making comments use this link to learn the rules and includes a fine example how to give public comment before the Commission.
Below is a video from a Lake Worth City Commission meeting. During breaks the sound is turned off, however the video keeps on taping. If tonight is your first time attending a Commission meeting and you see outrageous behavior such as displayed in the video do not attempt to get involved! Stay calm and do not get upset.

How Commissioner Andy Amoroso was treated is truly appalling; you can see that part using this link.

Since the audio was turned off added a composition by Modest Mussorgsky* with the classic Night on Bald Mountain.

Please share this information with anyone you think will be attending the meeting tonight so they will be prepared if any not-so-very-“charming” behavior occurs.
*Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky (1839–1881) was a Russian composer, one of the group known as “The Five”. He was an innovator of Russian music in the romantic period.
