8.0 PUBLIC COMMENT Members of the public may address the Board on non-agenda items that are within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board. Please fill out a comment card available at the entrance if you wish to provide a comment to the Board. We ask that comments are limited to two (2) minutes with no more than 15 minutes per single topic so that as many people as possible may be heard. It is within the Board President’s discretion to reduce the amount of allotted time for each public comment in an effort to provide the opportunity for all individuals to be heard within the allotted 30-minute timeframe for public comments. The Board values comments received, but the law requires that Board Members not engage in back and forth conversations on items not listed on the agenda. The Board may, at its discretion, refer a matter to district staff or calendar the issue for future discussion.
