Procedures applied to question period at borough council meetings
In order to give more citizens a chance to voice their opinions, borough council reviewed the structure of question period. Thus, each person who wishes to ask a question during a council meeting must register beforehand to do so. The registration period is from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the evening of the meeting. Citizens can also see the Council live.
- The borough mayor presides over council meetings and the public question period
- Public question period starts after the agenda is adopted.
- A second question period is held at the end of the meeting, and it concerns only the subjects on the agenda.
- Based on the registration order, the mayor invites the citizens to walk up to the microphone in the central aisle to ask their questions.
- The person asking the question must address the mayor and stick to the question at hand.
- Questions must be brief and clear and may include only the words required to obtain the information requested. A short preamble lasting no more than one minute will be permitted to provide background on the question.
- A question may be followed by a brief sub-question, with no preamble.
