SECTION: Board                                  POLICY NUMBER: B-G-16


SUBJECT: Board meetings                    EFFECTIVE DATE: May 22, 2003

REVISION DATE(S): June 16,2005




Regular meetings of the Pierce County Department of Human Services Board will be are held pursuant to Pierce County Code.


A special meeting of the Board is called by the Chairperson or by petition of a majority of board members. A public notice for a special meeting will state the business to be addressed by the Board at the special meeting.


The Pierce County Department of Human Services Board will comply with the state open meeting law. Meetings of the Board will be open to the public except on the occasion when the Board votes to close the session for purposes defined by state law, and in the manner prescribed by state law.


Those attending board meetings, other than board members and the Director, will be asked to sit away from the board table in an area designated for visitors to the meeting. Visitors are also asked to refrain from taking part in the Board’s deliberations, except upon request from the Board, and will otherwise not disrupt the Board’s work.


Board meetings open to the public view should not be confused with public hearings in which anyone is allowed to speak. The Board recognizes in all instances its right to control board meetings.


Visitors may use the public comments portion of the meeting to address the Board (see public comments policy). Visitors may also ask for time on the board agenda if the request is made to the Director at least three days in advance of the board meeting. The Director and the chairperson determine if the request to be on the agenda will be honored and how much time will be allocated to the agenda item.
