Citizen Comments during City Council Meetings

Public Comments is your opportunity to address your City of Farmers Branch elected officials directly about issues that are important to you and your community. Whether you comment via Public Comment session, or speak on a specific agenda item, your voice is important and will be heard. Speaker request form(s) will be accepted by the City Secretary from the time the agenda is posted up to 30 minutes prior to the start of the meeting. 

Individuals will not be recognized to speak during the meeting unless this form has been submitted for
each item of interest.

There is a three (3) minute time limit for each citizen to speak with a reasonable limitation on speakers on one topic or item with a maximum of fifteen total minutes on the same topic item.  Anyone wishing to speak shall be courteous and cordial.  No disparaging or inflammatory remarks directed at any member of the City Council or City Administration will be allowed.

When called by the Mayor, please approach the podium and state your name and address prior to beginning your comment.  If you have written notes you wish to present to Mayor and Council, please furnish an extra copy for the official files. Audio/visual presentations must be submitted in advance to the City Secretary’s Office, noon prior to the Council meeting. Please direct your comments to the City Council and not the audience.  

Forms will be directed to the City Secretary's Office. If you have any questions, please contact City Secretary Amy Piukana by email or 972.919.2503.
