The Gretna Public Library Board encourages residents to share their views about library matters.  As such, the Library Board agenda includes time at the end of each meeting for comments from the public regarding any of the matters on the current business agenda.  In order for the Board to fulfill its obligation to complete the scheduled agenda in an effective and efficient fashion, the following policy and procedure has been created.

Policy & Procedure:

Getting Started:  When it is your turn to speak during the public comment portion of the agenda, please stand up, come forward and state your name to the Gretna Library Board.

Time Limit:  You may speak only one time on any of the current business items and must limit comments to 3 minutes or less.  If you would like to speak about a matter or issue not on the agenda, please notify the Gretna Library Board in writing in advance, so that there is time to place the issue on a future agenda

General Rules:  Please remember that this is a public meeting for the conduct of the business of the Gretna Library Board.  Offensive language, personal attacks and hostile conduct will not be tolerated.
