Special Meetings and about Public Participation

Special meetings are scheduled for many different purposes.

Finance Meetings are scheduled to build the budget for the year, to alter the budget, to discuss financing of projects, and any other reason that involves the spending of public funds.

Public Hearings are scheduled to present items that need public input such as presentation of the Final Budget, review of Ordinance changes (Code or Zoning),and to present information on projects for public comment. Public Hearings can also exist for other reasons but generally they exist for public knowledge and comment.

Work Meetings are scheduled for the Council to work on various issues. This maybe the development of new ordinances, revising existing ordinances, committee work, planning and development of plans for implementation of Village improvements are just a few of things that may be done at these meetings. No decisions are made during a work meeting just suggestions for the Regular Council Meeting to decide if they want to take action, All work meetings are open to the public.

Public Participation in meetings – The only meetings that have scheduled public participation elements are the Regular Monthly Meetings and Public Hearings. Finance and Work Meetings do not have scheduled public participation elements. The Council may choose to open the floor to public comment during these meetings to seek public views but they are not required to. Finance and Work Meetings are sessions on which discussion and proposed decisions are made. No final decisions are made at these meetings. The results of these meetings and their proposals must be presented to the Public at a Regular Meetings or Public Hearings.

If you wish to address the Council during the public participation portion of a meeting you need to recognized by the presiding officer of the meeting, and then state your Name and Address before speaking.
