Citizens to Oppose Further Limitations on Public Comment
At RAD Board Meeting Monday, 5:00 p.m.
Regional Asset District (RAD) will speak-out at Monday’s RAD Board meeting. The regular meeting of the RAD Board will be held this-coming
Monday, April 30, 2007 at 5:00 p.m. (Public Comment section of the meeting is first agenda item) in a lower-level conference room of the Allegheny
The April 30 RAD Board meeting agenda:
includes an action item to require citizens to register to speak, during the public comment section of a RAD Board meeting, 24 hours in advance.
This provision, combined with a provision approved several years ago limiting all public comment to 15 minutes during any one meeting, would ensure
that no more than five citizens could speak at any one RAD Board meeting (as each citizen is limited to three minutes per meeting). Such a limitation would be
in direct violation of the Pennsylvania Sunshine Act, as amended.
