A fax copy or E-mail is acceptable, as long as it is in the proper format.  Unsigned comment forms are not acceptable.

The Advisory Council may choose to call upon a person submitting a comment, question, or concern, or they may not.  The Advisory Council  may recognize people that are not NEKAAA Advisory Council members, but whom are present at Advisory Council meeting and grant them permission to speak, or to answer questions when directed to them.  No person who is not a NEKAAA Advisory Council member will be allowed to address the Advisory Council unless they have either followed the process of written comments or are specifically called upon by the Chairperson of the Advisory Council, or the Acting Advisory Council Chairperson in his/her absence.  If necessary, violators of this policy may be physically removed from the place of the meeting and charged under law with disturbing the peace.

The intent of this policy is not to stifle comments, questions or concerns. The intent is to allow the Advisory Council to conduct their meeting in an orderly manner, without spontaneous interruptions or other distractions.
