REQUIREMENTS AND RULES TO ADDRESS TOWN COUNCIL AT MONTHLY MEETINGS

TO SPEAK BEFORE THE TOWN COUNCIL YOU ARE REQUIRED TO DO THE FOLLOWING

1} Your name and the subject you wish to address must be cleared through a current board member only. The name of these board members can be obtained from the Greenville Water Company Clerk {812-923-9821}.

2} Your name must be submitted to be on the meeting agenda three {3} business days prior to the town meeting.

3} If your name is not on the agenda and time will permit the Town Board President may allow you to speak if the subject is relevant to an impending issue with the town.

AFTER RECEIVING APPROVAL TO SPEAK THE FOLLOWING RULES WILL APPLY

Note: Something everyone should know: It is a privilege, not a right, to speak before any Town Board.

1} You will be given three {3} minutes to make your statement or ask your question before the Board.

{2} You will restrain from insulting and or arguing with any board member or other citizens attending the meeting. If this happens, you will be asked to stop speaking and be seated. If you refuse, you will be asked to leave. If you refuse to leave, you will be escorted from the meeting by the Sergeant of Arms.

3} When you are speaking, any board member may stop you to ask a question. If this happens, you may be given more time if the chair believes it is necessary. Please remember you are addressing the entire board and not just one member.

4} The chair has the right to change or alter the structure of the meeting. This is to give as much time to anyone as the chair sees necessary in order to conduct Greenville Town Business. The chair may deny your privilege to speak if he determines the reason to be frivolous or irrelevant at the time, or something the Board can not do anything about.

MINUTES FOR THE MEETING

1} Minutes for the meeting you are now attending will be available after their approval at the next monthly meeting. You may request these minutes by contacting the Greenville Town Clerk. There will be a fee for all printed copy requested.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION
