INFORMATION FOR AUDIENCE TIME FOR IN-PERSON CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS
Audience members who wish to speak during audience time are asked to register on the sign-in sheet posted on the Council Chambers door. Each person signing up to speak will be given an opportunity to address the City Council, although not necessarily in the order shown on the sign-in sheet. Each speaker will have three (3) minutes to speak. Audience time is not a discussion session with the Council members; please do not expect a response to your comments.
The following rules related to the behavior of audience members are expected to be followed:
City of Waukegan Code of Ordinances, Sec. 2-65.1. - Rules of decorum at City Council Meetings.
The presiding officer shall conduct city council meetings in an orderly manner. No person in the audience shall engage in disorderly conduct, including any act that disturbs, disrupts, or otherwise impedes the orderly conduct of any council meeting or the presentation of any speaker.
During the public comment portion of the city council meetings, if any, all public comments are limited to three minutes per individual. Individuals are directed to be brief and concise in making their remarks and to address topics directly relevant to business of the city council.
The presiding officer, after one warning, may rule any individual addressing the city council out of order if the individual:
(1) Becomes repetitive;
(2) Exceeds the three-minute limitation;
(3) Makes personal attacks against others;
(4) Makes rude or slanderous remarks;
(5) Becomes threatening or boisterous;
(6) Engages in electioneering for candidate(s); or
(7) Otherwise interferes with the orderly and dignified conduct of the meeting.
If ruled out of order and is found by the chair to be out of order, the individual may be barred from further remarks at that city council meeting and barred from further attendance at that meeting. This ruling of the chair can be overridden by a two-thirds vote of the aldermen present.
Nothing herein is intended to limit or restrain negative, positive or neutral comments about the manner in which an individual employee, officer, official or council member carries out his or her duties in public office or public employment of the city. (Ord. No. 07-O-53, § 2, 5-7-07)
