NOTE: Items on the agenda may be taken out of order; combined with other items; removed from the agenda; moved to the agenda of another
meeting; moved to or from the Consent section; or may be voted on in a block. Items voted on in a block are considered a single item for purposes
of public comment on action items as provided below in the description of the parameters for "Public Comment" section, so that there will be only
one period of public comment on the block vote; any public comment made during that period may pertain to any of the items being voted on in
the block, but there will not be separate public comment periods for each item within the block. Items with a specific time designation will not be
heard prior to the stated time, but may be heard later. The Consent is a single agenda item and is considered as a block and will not be read aloud.
The Board of County Commissioners may take breaks approximately every 90 minutes.

Public Comment. Members of the public may also submit comments by mail, email to Washoe311@washoecounty.gov, or voice message at: (775)

played for broadcast and emails will not be read by the Clerk.
Time Limits. Public comments are welcomed during the Public Comment periods for all matters, whether listed on the agenda or not, and are
limited to three minutes per person. Additionally, public comment of three minutes per person will be heard during individually numbered items
designated as "for possible action" on the agenda. Persons are invited to submit comments in writing on the agenda items and/or attend and make
comment on that item at the Commission meeting. Persons may not allocate unused time to other speakers.
Forum Restrictions and Orderly Conduct of Business. The Board of County Commissioners conducts the business of Washoe County and its citizens
during its meetings. The presiding officer may order the removal of any person whose statement or other conduct disrupts the orderly, efficient or
safe conduct of the meeting. Warnings against disruptive comments or behavior may or may not be given prior to removal. The viewpoint of a
speaker will not be restricted, but reasonable restrictions may be imposed upon the time, place and manner of speech. Irrelevant and unduly
repetitious statements and personal attacks which antagonize or incite others are examples of speech that may be reasonably limited.
Responses to Public Comments. The County Commission can deliberate or take action only if a matter has been listed on an agenda properly
posted prior to the meeting. During the public comment period, speakers may address matters listed or not listed on the published agenda. The
Open Meeting Law does not expressly prohibit responses to public comments by the Commission. However, responses from Commissioners to
unlisted public comment topics could become deliberation on a matter without notice to the public. On the advice of legal counsel and to ensure
the public has notice of all matters the Commission will consider, Commissioners may choose not to respond to public comments, except to correct
factual inaccuracies, ask for County staff action or to ask that a matter be listed on a future agenda. The Commission may do this either during the
public comment item or during the following item "Commissioners'/County Manager's announcements, reports and updates, requested for
information or topics for future agendas.".
