MEETING PROCEDURES

 

The City of Richmond encourages community participation at its City Council meetings and has established procedures that are intended to accommodate public input in a timely and

time-sensitive way.† As a courtesy to all members of the public who wish to participate in City Council meetings, please observe the following procedures:

 

PUBLIC COMMENT ON AGENDA ITEMS:† Anyone who desires to address the City Council on items appearing on the agenda must complete and file a pink speakerís card with the City Clerk prior to the City Councilís consideration of the item.† Once the City Clerk has announced the item, no person shall be permitted to speak on the item other than those persons who have submitted their names to the City Clerk.† Your name will be called when the item is announced for discussion.† Each speaker will be allowed up to TWO (2) MINUTES to address the City Council on NON-PUBLIC HEARING items listed on the agenda. Speakers are allowed up to THREE (3) minutes on PUBLIC HEARING items.

 

OPEN FORUM FOR PUBLIC COMMENT:† Individuals who would like to address the City Council on matters not listed on the agenda or on items remaining on the consent calendar may do so under Open Forum.† All speakers must complete and file a pink speakerís card with the City Clerk prior to the commencement of Open Forum.† The amount of time allotted to individual speakers shall be determined based on the number of persons requesting to speak during this item.† The time allocation for each speaker will be as follows:† 15 or fewer speakers, a maximum of 2 minutes; 16 to 24 speakers, a maximum of 1 and one-half minutes; and 25 or more speakers, a maximum of 1 minute.

 

SPEAKERS ARE REQUESTED TO OCCUPY THE RESERVED SEATS IN THE FRONT ROW BEHIND THE SPEAKERíS PODIUM AS THEIR NAME IS ANNOUNCED BY THE CITY CLERK.

 

CONSENT CALENDAR:† Consent Calendar items are considered routine and will be enacted, approved or adopted by one motion unless a request for removal for discussion or explanation is received from the audience or the City Council.† A member of the audience requesting to remove an item from the consent calendar must first complete a speakerís card and file the card with the City Clerk prior to the City Councilís consideration of Agenda Review.† Councilmembers who request to remove an item from the consent calendar must do so during Agenda Review.† An item removed from the Consent Calendar may be placed anywhere on the agenda following the City Councilís agenda review.

 

CONDUCT AT MEETINGS:† Richmond City Council meetings are limited public forums during which the City strives to provide an open, safe atmosphere and promote robust public debate. Members of the public, however, must comply with state law, as well as the Cityís laws and procedures and may not actually disrupt the orderly conduct of these meetings. The public, for example, may not shout or use amplifying devices, must submit comment cards and speak during their allotted time, may not create a physical disturbance, may not speak on matters unrelated to issues within the jurisdiction of the City Council or the agenda item at hand, and may not cause immediate threats to public safety.

 

CITY HARASSMENT POLICY:† The City invites public comment and critique about its operations, including comment about the performance of its public officials and employees, at the public meetings of the City Council and boards and commissions. However, discriminatory or harassing comments about or in the presence of City employees, even comments by third parties, may create a hostile work environment, if severe or pervasive. The City prohibits harassment against an applicant, employee, or contractor on the basis of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, medical condition, mental disability, marital status, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, age or veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law.† In order to acknowledge the publicís right to comment on City operations at public meetings, which could include comments that violate the Cityís harassment policy if such comments do not cause an actual disruption under the Council Rules and Procedures, while taking reasonable steps to protect City employees from discrimination and harassment, City Boards and Commissions shall adhere to the following procedures.† If any person makes a harassing remark at a public meeting that violates the above City policy prohibiting harassment, the presiding officer of the meeting may, at the conclusion of the speakerís remarks and allotted time: (a) remind the public that the Cityís Policy Regarding Harassment of its Employees is contained in the written posted agenda; and (b) state that comments in violation of City policy are not condoned by the City and will play no role in City decisions.† If any person makes a harassing remark at a public meeting that violates the above City policy, any City employee in the room who is offended by remarks violating the Cityís policy is excused from attendance at the meeting. No City employee is compelled to remain in attendance where it appears likely that speakers will make further harassing comments. If an employee leaves a City meeting for this reason, the presiding officer may send a designee to notify any offended employee who has left the meeting when those comments are likely concluded so that the employee may return to the meeting. The presiding officer may remind an employee or any council or board or commission member that he or she may leave the meeting if a remark violating the Cityís harassment policy is made.† These procedures supplement the Council Rules and Procedures relating to disruption of orderly conduct at Council meetings.

 

 

Any law enforcement officer on duty or whose service is commanded by the presiding officer shall be Sergeant-at-Arms of the Council meetings.† He/she, or they, shall carry out all orders and instructions given by the presiding officer for the purpose of maintaining order and decorum at the Council meetings (City Council Rules of Procedure and Order Section III F, RMC Section 2.12.030).
