Welcome to this meeting of the Johnson County Board of Commissioners.
The Board of County Commissioners encourages citizen participation in local governance processes. To that end, and in compliance with the Kansas Open
Meetings Act (KSA 75-4317), you are invited to participate in todays meeting. The following rules have been established to facilitate the transaction of business during the meeting; please take a moment to review these rules before the meeting begins.
Always speak from the podium, using the microphone. This ensures that all remarks are accurately and properly recorded. Only one speaker should be at
the podium at a time. Speakers are requested to state their full name, address, and group affiliation, if any, before delivering any remarks. Speakers should restate their name each time subsequent remarks are made.
Speakers should limit their comments so as not to exceed five minutes. In the event of extensive public participation, the Chairman may further limit
speaking times to assure as many people as possible have an opportunity to address the Board of County Commissioners.
The Public Comment period provides citizens a forum to address the Board of County Commissioners on matters that pertain to or involve the Johnson
County Government, but which do not appear on the printed agenda.
The Consent Agenda is a single agenda item that can include multiple items previously reviewed and determined to be of a routine business nature.
Items that are included as part of the Consent Agenda will be voted upon under a single motion, unless separate discussion on any single item is requested by a Member of the Board of County Commissioners or a member of the public. If separate discussion on any item is requested, it will be set aside for further consideration as part of the Action Agenda.
