Meeting Rules and Procedures

Consistent with the requirements of law, particularly Chapters 163 and 166, Florida Statutes, the City Commission of the City of Palmetto has prepared these rules in an attempt to encourage public participation during public hearings to the full extent allowed by law. As part of that effort and within the confines of the law, the Commission intends its meetings and hearings to be informal and not intimidating for the public, while recognizing the need for certain structure to maintain orderly meetings.
