  1. Address the Board only at the appropriate time as indicated on the agenda and when recognized by the Board President.  
 
  2. Complete a comment card; identify oneself and be brief.  Ordinarily, comments shall be limited to 3 minutes.  In unusual circumstances, and when an individual has made a request in advance to speak for a longer period of time, the individual may be allowed to speak for more than 3 minutes.  
 
  3. Observe the Board President’s decision to shorten public comment to conserve time and give the maximum number of individuals an opportunity to speak.  
 
  4. Observe the Board President’s decision to determine procedural matters regarding public participation not otherwise covered in Board policy.
