Public Comment Registration for CapMetro Board Meetings
Speakers may elect to speak in person or remotely during the Public Comment portion at the beginning of the meeting. You can register to speak by completing the Public Comment form outside the board room before the meeting or contacting CapMetro via email or phone (at 512-369-6040) by 9 a.m. the day of the meeting.
Each speaker will have 3 minutes to address the board on a single topic or 5 minutes if discussing more than one item. Non-English speakers requiring a translator will receive twice as much time to address the board. If more than one member of the public from a particular group is present and requests to comment, the chair may ask the group to select one representative to present the group’s view. That person will be allowed 5 minutes to speak.
It’s left to the board’s discretion to waive these procedures when necessary to conduct board meetings efficiently and effectively. CapMetro reserves the right to remove anyone who causes a disturbance at an open meeting or take other actions to promote an orderly meeting.
