Public meetings function a little differently. In a Regular Council Meeting, persons in the audience who have not been granted delegation status are not permitted to speak.
At Public Input Meetings, audience members may be permitted to speak after being first recognized by the Chair and then by unanimous consent of the Council.

You may address Council following the same guidelines as if you had been granted a Delegation (on the reverse).
