Preliminary Matters

Roll Call:

Ceremonial Matters: In addition to those items listed on the agenda, the Mayor may add additional ceremonial matters.

City Manager Comments:  The City Manager may make announcements or provide information to the City Council in the form of an oral report.  The Council will not take action on such items but may request the City Manager place a report on a future agenda for discussion.

Public Comment on Non-Agenda Matters: Five persons selected by lottery will have two minutes each to address matters not on the Council agenda.  Persons wishing to address the Council on matters not on the Council agenda during the initial ten-minute period for such comment, must submit a name card to the City Clerk in person at the meeting location and prior to commencement of that meeting.  Five cards will be drawn by the City Clerk to determine the speakers who will be allowed to comment during the first round of public comment on non-agenda matters. The remainder of the speakers wishing to address the Council on non-agenda items will be heard at the end of the agenda. Name cards are not required for this second round of public comment on non-agenda matters.

Public Comment on Consent Calendar and Information Items Only: The Council will take public comment on any items that are either on the amended Consent Calendar or the Information Calendar.  Up to three speakers will be entitled to two minutes each to speak in opposition to or support of a Consent Calendar Item.  The Presiding Officer will ask additional persons in the audience to stand to demonstrate their respective opposition to or support of the item.

In the event that there are more than three persons wishing to speak either in opposition to or support of a “Consent” item, the Presiding Officer will move the item to the beginning of the Action Calendar.  Prior to moving the item, the Presiding Officer will fully inform those persons in the audience of this process.

Additional information regarding public comment by City of Berkeley employees and interns: Employees and interns of the City of Berkeley, although not required, are encouraged to identify themselves as such, the department in which they work and state whether they are speaking as an individual or in their official capacity when addressing the Council in open session or workshops.

Consent Calendar

The Council will first determine whether to move items on the agenda for action or “Information” to the “Consent Calendar”, or move “Consent Calendar” items to action.  Items that remain on the “Consent Calendar” are voted on in one motion as a group.  “Information” items are not discussed or acted upon at the Council meeting unless they are moved to “Action” or “Consent”.

After hearing from public speakers regarding items remaining on the Consent Calendar, any Council Member may move any Information or Consent item to “Action”, however no additional items can be moved onto the Consent Calendar at that point.  Following this, the Council will vote on the items remaining on the Consent Calendar in one motion.

For items removed from the Consent Calendar to the Action Calendar for additional public comment, at the time the matter is taken up during the Action Calendar, public comment will be limited to persons who have not previously addressed that item during the Consent Calendar related public comment period.
