The City of Santa Maria welcomes orderly participation at its meetings from all members of the public.  Orderly participation means speaking only on items of City business or on subjects within the City’s control.  Though the City Council wants to hear your concerns and values your input, it is inappropriate to defame, yell, or use profane language.  All cellular telephones and pagers are to be turned off or set to vibrate, and signs are not to be displayed in a manner which violates the rights of others or prevents others from watching or fully participating in the Council meeting.  Pursuant to Government Code Section 36813, the Mayor is authorized to prohibit such conduct, up to and including ordering anyone that disrupts the meeting to be removed from the City Council Chambers.

 

Participation includes assistance under the Americans with Disabilities Act to provide an equally effective opportunity for individuals with a disability to participate in and benefit from City activities. To request assistance, please call 925-0951, extension 307. For TDD (Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf) call (800) 735-2929.  The City has equipment available for the hearing impaired and for Spanish-only speaking persons who wish to participate.  Notification at least 48 hours prior to the meeting is required for the City to make reasonable accommodation arrangements for the meeting.

The Council values your input.  Individual speakers are limited to three minutes or as directed by the Mayor.  To address the Council you are asked to fill out a Request to Speak Form and provide it to City Staff PRIOR TO this part of the agenda.  Once the public comment period commences, no other speakers will be allowed to submit a Request to Speak Form.  This time is reserved to accept comments from the public on Consent Agenda items, Closed Session items, or matters not otherwise scheduled on this agenda.  Direction to staff may be given; however, State law does not allow action to be taken by the Council on matters not on the printed agenda at this meeting.  The law requires that notice be given to the public at large to allow for full disclosure and discussion and decisions on important public issues.  To have City Council discussions and decisions on unnoticed items would prevent the type of public input necessary to make governmental decisions.
