Guest posted a topic in General DiscussionDuring a regular meeting a question and answer session is on the agenda. What types of questions can the public ask at that point? Do they have to relate to something on the meeting's agenda or can they be about other specific issues dealt with at a previous meeting?
As a board member I suggested a number of items that concerned both old and new business for our upcoming board meeting. Only a few of the items have been placed on the draft agenda by our president. In addition the agenda has time limits set opposite each discussion items. This has never been done before. Does the president alone control the agenda items. Does he alone control the length of time each item can be discussed? If my issues were not put on the agenda can I bring them up in the meeting?
