Garden Grove Council to limit public comments?
Posted by Thomas Gordon on January 8, 2013
This evening the Garden Grove City Council will be discussing an item that would reduce the amount of time for public comment.
Staff reports state “An inordinate amount of time is devoted to public comment, often of a repetitive nature.”
The Council seeks to cut the time per speaker from 5 minutes to 3 minutes.
I’ve heard from several residents and community leaders who state that they plan on objecting to the proposal at this evenings meeting which starts at 6:30.
Do you think the Council will place limits on speakers or find a better way to do the people’s business without limiting the people’s input?
