Individuals needing special accommodations such as sign language, foreign language interpreters or equipment for the hearing impaired must request
such services at least 48 hours prior to the meeting. To request accommodations or services, please call 503-588-6255 or 503-588-6003 (TTD/TTY 503-588-6439), or by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org at least two business days in advance.
THE CONSENT CALENDAR The Consent Calendar allows the Council to save time by acting on everything listed on that part of the agenda with one motion
instead of considering each item separately. If a City Councilor believes a matter on the Consent Calendar deserves further discussion, the Councilor can request that item be removed from the Consent Calendar and considered separately under Special Orders of Business.
PUBLIC COMMENT There are two times at every regular City Council meeting when the public has an opportunity to address the City Council. The first
time is immediately prior to the Consent Calendar. This time is reserved for questions or statements regarding items appearing on the agenda, except public hearings and the merits of land use issues. The second time is at the end of the agenda. At this time, you can address the City Council on any matter of public concern, other than an agenda item. The Mayor will announce the time for public comment, and invite persons to address the City Council. Each person has three minutes to address the City Council. The time light on the podium will flash yellow when you have one minute left, and will turn red when your time has expired.
HOW TO GET YOUR COMMENTS INCLUDED AS PART OF THE AGENDA Any written comments that you wish to be given to the City Council that are about an item on
an agenda must be submitted to the City Recorder by 5:00 pm on the day of the City Council meeting when the item will be considered. If you have some matter that you wish to have the City Council consider in the future, you are encouraged to submit your suggestion in writing to the City Manager at 555 Liberty Street SE, Room 205, Salem, OR, or by e-mail to: email@example.com.
PUBLIC HEARINGS The City Council can hold public hearings to consider legislative, quasi-judicial or administrative matters. To testify at a hearing,
you may sign up on the Hearing Roster located near the east entrance to the Council Chambers before the Mayor convenes the meeting. At the time for the hearing on the agenda, the Mayor will announce when the public hearing is open. If you have signed up to speak, come forward to the podium when the Mayor calls your name. State your name and either your address or the ward you live in. If you wish to receive notice of any written decision reached at the hearing, you must provide the City Recorder your address. When you have finished speaking, the Mayor will ask the Council if there are any questions for you, so please remain at the podium for a moment.
The time limit is 3 minutes per person for legislative and administrative hearings. The time limits for quasi-judicial hearings in non-land use cases
are as follows: 1. Staff Presentation 15 minutes 2. Affected Party 15 minutes 3. Neighborhood Associations 5 minutes 4. Other Interested Persons 3 minutes per person 5. Rebuttal by Affected Party 7 minutes
Time limits for quasi-judicial land use hearings are governed by Rule 19 of the Council Rules. Parties to land use cases are encouraged to review
that rule as time limits vary depending on the nature of the hearing. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Planning Administrator at 503-588-6173 or email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Timer lights are located on the podiums. A flashing yellow light means you have one minute left; a red light means your time has expired.
