Speakers will be given up to three (3) minutes each to speak. Speakers may not use their time for campaign purposes or make budget requests. Budget requests must be addressed at Budget Public Hearings which typically occur in January and May each year.  In 2023, they occur on January 18, 2023 and May 25, 2023.
