Addressing the EDC

Those interested in addressing the EDC may do so at any EDC meeting by signing in prior to the opening of the meeting. The sign-in log is provided at each meeting.  In order to afford everyone an equal opportunity to address the EDC, speakers are asked to limit their presentations to three minutes during the public comment section as posted on the agenda and/or on any agenda item.   EDC is unable to take action, but will listen. The EDC is prohibited from responding to comments or asking questions, but may ask staff to look into concerns and provide follow-up.

If you plan to present EDC with information, have the materials ready to present to the Executive Director who will distribute to the EDC.  Any information you would like to provide to the EDC prior to the meeting may be emailed to the Executive Director at no later than Wednesday prior to the following Thursday’s meeting.

To be placed on the agenda to more formally address the EDC, notification should be made no later than the Friday prior to the following Thursday’s meeting. A written request is required, stating the reason for the appointment and topic to be addressed and this will be placed on the agenda at the discretion of the Board President and Executive Director.
