Meetings: Meetings are open to the public. Meetings can be regularly scheduled meetings or special called meetings. Every meeting has an agenda, a summary, and minutes.
Public Comment Procedures: Citizens’ comments are an opportunity for the citizens of the City of Carrollton to address the Mayor and Council with issues or concerns regarding items on the current meeting agenda.
- No vulgar, abusive or profane language will be tolerated.
- All remarks should be directed to the mayor and not to individual councilmembers, staff or citizens in attendance.
- If several citizens wish to speak on the same subject, one should be chosen to speak and others express their support. Please do not repeat subject matter.
- Any matters pertaining to personnel procedures or personnel grievances will not be heard during citizen’s comments. Those should be directed to the city manager or human resources director.
- The failure of any citizen to comply with these rules may be grounds for the mayor or presiding officer to rule the citizen out of order and if the citizen fails to comply with directions of the mayor or presiding officer, they may be removed from the meeting.
- We have dedicated 30 minutes for our citizens comments and citizens are allowed to speak for three minutes each.
