MOORHEAD CITY COUNCIL MEETING AGENDA

January 11, 2010 - 5:30 PM

City Hall Council Chambers

 

The Moorhead City Council welcomes and encourages public input on issues listed on the agenda or of general community interest.  Advertised public hearings are scheduled as such so that the public is afforded an opportunity to speak.  Citizens wishing to address the Mayor and Council regarding specific agenda items, other than public hearings, should indicate so and will be afforded an opportunity during the discussion of said item, Council willing and time permitting. Citizens wishing to speak on matters not listed on the agenda (or items on the agenda that did not include an opportunity to speak) are always afforded the opportunity to do so under the headings “Citizens Addressing the Council”, usually scheduled at the beginning and end of the agenda. Presentations are limited to three (3) minutes. In any case, citizens are asked to complete a ‘Request to Speak Card’.
