Public comment at the City Commission meeting tonight.

How does one give public comment? It’s very easy. Use this link to learn how with one video showing “how to” and another video showing “how not to”. The most important thing to remember is:

Always be respectful to the Chair of the meeting, Mayor Pam Triolo.

When the little bell rings, please swiftly conclude and return to your seat. If you prepared your remarks ahead of time (highly recommended) and were not able to finish, hand your card to the city manager and he’ll have your comments entered into the record.

Vibrancy and charm are encouraged.
Also important. You are not required to use all of your time (two or three minutes) at public comment. It’s perfectly acceptable to stop at any time, smile, say “Thank you” to the Chair and politely give way to the next person in line.
