Marshall-Putnam Soil & Water Conservation District Policy on addressing a board meeting

The Marshall-Putnam Soil & Water Conservation District Board meetings are open to the public, as the district is a tax supported body.

Visitors who wish to address the Board of Directors at a board meeting may do so, provided a request is submitted in writing 48 hours prior to the meeting, so that they may be added to the agenda. The speaker must then observe a 10 minute time limit. The moderator may allow additional time.

This policy was adopted by the MP-SWCD Board of Directors on July 12th, 2018.
