Public Participation in Library Board Meetings policy
Effective June 25, 2023
The library board of trustees meets bimonthly on the first Thursday of the month (unless otherwise noted). Information on date and times of the meetings can be found below.
It is the intent of the library board that persons wishing to address comments or ask questions shall be afforded reasonable and fair opportunity to do so. Members of the public wishing to address the board may do so at any regularly scheduled meeting during the agenda time reserved for communications.
To be allowed to speak, visitors must email the Library Director by the Monday no later than 5:00 pm, (regardless of whether Monday is a holiday) before the upcoming meeting with their full name, street address, and reason for speaking. Speakers must be residents of the City of Prattville or Autauga County. The Board President will call on each visitor one at a time to stand and address the board for no more than the allocated time. Speakers may not yield their time to another individual. Requests for time to speak will usually be granted in the order they were received. Speakers must identify any groups or organizations for which they will speak in an official capacity.
Each speaker is given three (3) minutes to share their views with the board. No person may speak more than once per meeting.
Comments should be in good taste and remarks about specific individuals are not allowed. If the Board President feels that a speaker is not following these guidelines or other Board policies, the Board President is authorized to direct that speaker to sit down or leave the meeting.
It should not be expected that the board would take immediate or official action on any subject brought before it without having time for review or study of facts or matters presented.
The Board President recognizes each registered speaker. The Trustees listen and do not interact with the speakers. The Board President introduces each speaker and keeps track of the time. The Board President may ask questions or ask for additional information from persons appearing before the board.
