Meeting Information for the Public
Special and Urgent Message relating to public participation at Central San Board and Committee Meetings in response to COVID-19 pandemic:
Anyone wishing to address the Board of Directors is requested to complete a speaker’s card and submit it to the Secretary of the District. Speaker cards are available digitally on this webpage and in hard copy in the Meeting Room. In addressing the Board, speakers are requested to step to the podium and state their name and address for the record. The Board President may direct questions to any member of the audience as appropriate at any time during the meeting.
All matters listed under the Consent Calendar are considered to be routine by the Board and will be enacted by one motion. There will be no separate discussion of these items unless requested by a Member of the Board or the public prior to the time the Board votes on the motion to adopt.
Addressing the Board on an Item on the Agenda
Persons wishing to speak on Public Hearings and other matters listed on the agenda will be heard when the President calls for comments from the audience, except on public hearing items previously heard and closed to public comment. The President may specify the number of minutes each person will be permitted to speak based on the number of persons wishing to speak and the time available. After the public has commented, the item is closed to further public comment and brought to the Board for discussion and action. No further comment is permitted from the audience unless invited by the Board.
Addressing the Board on an Item NOT on the Agenda
In accordance with state law, the Board is prohibited from discussing matters not calendared on the agenda. You may address the Board on any items not listed on the agenda, and which are within their jurisdiction, under Public Comments. Matters brought up which are not on the agenda may be referred to staff for action or calendared on a future agenda.
Supporting materials on agenda items are available for public review at the Reception Desk, 5019 Imhoff Place, Martinez, and on this website. Not every agenda item is accompanied by written supporting material. Reports and information relating to agenda items distributed within 72 hours of the meeting to a majority of the Board are also available for public inspection at the Reception Desk and on this website. During the meeting, information and supporting materials are available in the Meeting Room.
