Board of Ethics Rule 4(j): “It is the intent of the BOE, subject to reasonable rules as it may impose, to allow the public to speak. A public comment period my be scheduled on the agenda. Public comment is subject to the necessary rule of avoiding excessive repetition, obstructionism or personal attacks. The Chair or a majority of the members may rule that a speaker is out-of-order, and upon such ruling by the majority of members preset the speaker may not speak further at the meeting.
In an attempt to balance the benefits of public comments and the efficient administration of the work of the Board of Ethics, the Board will generally use the follow procedure: (I) first discuss the agenda items and make tentative decisions, (ii) hear public comments during the specified time period and (iii) after pubic comments, make its final decisions. From time to time, however, a member of the Board of Ethics may wish to ask a question or seek comments from the public during the initial discussion of an agenda item.
