Policy on Addressing the Board of Commissioners

Visitors are always welcome to all meetings of the Oregon Park District except for the portion of the meetings that are held in executive session. The Board President will identify and call on members of the audience wishing to address the Board in random order. You will be recognized by raising your hand during that portion of the Agenda entitled “Recognition of Visitors”. Upon being recognized you will be required to state your name, address and reason
for addressing the Board. Everyone is encouraged to seek information and appropriate remedies to concerns or complaints prior to the meeting by discussing them with the appropriate department superv isor or the Executive Director of the Oregon Park District.

Time allowed for audience comments is limited to three minutes per person. Applauding, booing, or any disruptive inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated no will demeaning, derogatory, defaming or malicious comments about board Members, Staff or other members of the audience be permitted. Violators will be asked to leave the meeting and or be subject to arrest for disorderly conduct if their behavior constitutes a threat to the safety of any Member of the Board, Park District Staff or the audience.

Anyone wishing to address the Board of Commissioners on matters regarding personnel or matters not identified on the written agenda are requested to submit notice to the Board Secretary two working days in advance of the meeting along with specific and detailed written information explaining the matter. This will allow the Oregon Park District Secretary of the Board to notify Board Members of issues and allow the Oregon Park District legal counsel and staff to research facts and solutions.

Members of the Board rely on staff for information and typically will not have answers to common procedural questions or issues. The main function of the Oregon Park District Board is to provide direction, set policy and district goals while it is the responsibility of staff to manage the day to day operations of the Park District.
