How do I speak at a Town Council meeting?

You will need to fill out a Presentation and Announcement Form and deliver the completed form to the Town Secretary before starting the meeting. The Mayor will call up to the podium those individuals from the audience who have signed up to speak. All speakers are asked to direct their comments to the Town Council, not to the audience. All speakers are to begin by stating their full name and home address for the record. All speakers are given three minutes to speak and may address the Council only once. Speakers will not be allowed to cede time to another speaker. Homeowners Association/large groups are encouraged to designate a spokesperson. Such groups may designate one spokesperson to speak on its behalf with a maximum of ten minutes. The presentations and announcements will then close. State Law prohibits Council from responding to a speaker if the topic is not on the agenda.
