The Board of County Commissioners may take breaks approximately every 90 minutes.

Forum Restrictions and Orderly Conduct of Business. The Board of County Commissioners conducts the business of Washoe County and its citizens

speaker will not be restricted, but reasonable restrictions may be imposed upon the time, place and manner of speech. Irrelevant and unduly

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
