Attend a Board Meeting
The Onondaga Free Library Board of Trustees invites public comment on matters on the agenda to those who have signed up in advance with the Director of the Library or by emailing the Trustees at email@example.com.
Please limit your comments to 2 minutes or less. Written remarks may be provided to the Board of Trustees for dissemination to the Board if time expires before a speaker completes their remarks, or in lieu of speaking. The entire time period is set at 30 minutes to ensure the Board of Trustees can efficiently address the business on its agenda.
We request individuals to state their name prior to comments, provide the Library Secretary with their contact information for purposes of follow-up, and utilize the podium/microphone to address the Board. Although the Board will not respond directly to individual comments at this time so that it has time to look into matters and process them, items brought to the attention of the Board may be taken under consideration for a future response, action, or follow-up with the speaker.
Issues related to specific Library patrons or personnel, whether positive, negative, or neutral, must be brought to the attention of the Director privately in order to safeguard the privacy of those involved. The Board reserves the right to terminate a speaker’s comments if their comments are in excess of 2 minutes, are repetitive, or are not appropriate for discussion in an open public forum.
All visitors are reminded to abide by the Library Code of Conduct and to be respectful and courteous both as speakers and as audience members. We are a community focused on bettering public service for our community, some of whom may be present. Modeling appropriate behavior is required of visitors.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
