The cost of duplication and/or court reporter will be at the expense of the requesting party.

Pursuant to Section 286.0114, Florida Statutes, effective October 1, 2013, the public is invited to speak on any “proposition” before a board, commission, council, or appointed committee takes official action regardless of whether the issue is on the Agenda. Certain exemptions for emergencies, ministerial acts, etc. apply. This public participation does not affect the right of a person to be heard as otherwise provided by law.
Oral or written exchanges (sometimes referred to as lobbying or information gathering) between a Council Member and others, including staff, where there is a substantive discussion regarding a quasi­judicial decision by the City Council.
