Select Board Meeting and Public Hearing Protocol
Select Board meetings are open to public observation.  The Board provides an opportunity for public input during the Citizen Concerns section of each meeting's agenda.  If you wish to speak, raise your hand to be recognized, stand, state your name for the record, and nature of your business.  Comments should be courteous.   Personal remarks or accusatory comments are always out of order and will be ruled as such.  Each discussion may be limited to 2 minutes. Should the matter need further research or discussion the question will be noted and may be reviewed during a future meeting.  The Board shall not be expected to respond or take action immediately.  The Chair or a majority of the Select Board may close public comment at any time.  All attendees are requested to be courteous by creating no noise when another person is speaking.
Agenda items are the work outline for the Board, the public has a right to comment during the discussion of these items, only when called upon by the Chair.  The Chair shall have the authority to call the question and cease discussion or debate on a matter.  Unless one or more members of the Board objects the Chair may determine that agreement on simple matters has been reached by consensus, which shall be reflected in the meeting minutes.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation and participation with the Benton Select Board.
When Monday meetings are canceled due to inclement weather, the meeting will be held Wednesday weather permitting.
