Procedure for Public Comments at Town Council Meeting:

* Town Council meetings are conducted pursuant to Roberts Rules of Order with the Town Attorney serving as the parliamentarian.

*Voting to amend a meeting agenda or to suspend rules of the body shall be by a majority vote of the quorum present for the meeting.

* At the beginning of each regular or special-called meeting of the Town Council, before voting on any actionable items excluding the minutes, the Town Council shall reserve a time for 'Public Comments'.

* Citizens of the Town of Burns shall be permitted to make public comments pursuant to this Procedure as adopted by the Town Council. All public comments shall be germane to the item (s) on the agenda for the meeting.

* Any citizen wishing to make public comments must be present at the meeting.

* The Town Council shall provide a sign-in sheet for citizens (as described below) to indicate a desire to make public comments at the meeting.
