Rules of Conduct for Board of Supervisor Meetings

 

In order to conduct efficient and productive meetings of the Board of Supervisors, residents are encouraged to follow these simple rules when offering a public comment:

 

  • Stay focused on the topic being discussed
  • Accept divergent perspectives and respect the opinions of others
  • Listen carefully about what others are saying whether or not you agree
  • Do not interrupt others when they are speaking
  • Limit your comments to 3 minutes and may be adjusted by the Chairman as needed, to allow time for others to participate in the meeting discussion
  • Focus on positive, constructive outcomes
  • Avoid comments about personal matters; limit comments to Township business only
  • Do not hold side conversations; they are disruptive
  • Encourage & support different points of view
  • When in doubt, ask for clarification
  • Recognize that everyone shares responsibility for the success of the community

 

The Board believes that following these simple rules will encourage positive discourse on matters involving the Township and its government, improves cooperation among meeting participants, and will help keep Northampton Township a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
