The City of Rutland Agendas
City Council meeting agendas are prepared by the City Auditor several days prior to each Council meeting. A public comment period is provided for at each meeting.
Public Comment Period: Each individual wishing to be heard during the public comment period of the meeting will be given up to 5 minutes to make a comment. Each person is limited to one turn. The Mayor may use discretion whether to allow repeat statements from the same individual. The total time limit for speaking is 15 minutes for all speakers. No council action should be expected during public comments, as the council needs to thoroughly study all proposals or requests not of routine nature. The mayor or city council will not enter into a dialogue with citizens. Questions from the city council will be for clarification purposes only. Public comment will not be used as a time for problem solving or reacting to comments made, but, rather for hearing citizens for informational purposes only.
Presenting items for consideration by the City Council: All communications, records, or other information submitted to the City Office to be placed on the agenda is treated as a public record. The deadline for submitting items for the agenda is noon on the Wednesday prior to the next meeting. A single, original document addressed to the Mayor and Council - with specifics regarding the proposed agenda item - must be submitted with your request for an agenda item. It is at the discretion of the Mayor to limit agenda items to one item per person per meeting. Action on any items presented by residents will be acted upon at the discretion of the Mayor and City Council.
