Public Comment: The public is encouraged to comment on agenda items at committee meetings by completing a request-to-speak card (available from staff) and passing it to the committee secretary. Public comment may be limited by any of the procedures set forth in Section 3.09 of MTC?s Procedures Manual (Resolution No. 1058, Revised) if, in the chair?s judgment, it is necessary to maintain the orderly flow of business.
Meeting Compensation: Each MTC Commissioner here today will be entitled to receive $100 per meeting attended, up to a maximum of $500 per month per agency. This amount is provided as a result of convening a meeting for which each member is entitled to collect such amount.
Record of Meeting: MTC meetings are recorded. Copies of recordings are available at nominal charge, or recordings may be listened to at MTC offices by appointment. Audiocasts are maintained on MTC?s Web site for public review for at least one year.
Parking at the Scottish Rite Center: Parking is available in the free lot which is located behind the Center?s building, on Madison Street. Madison is a one way street, running in the opposite direction as Lakeside. Other lots are also available on Madison Street which are not free. Some on-street parking is also available. If Center's parking lot is full you may have to resort to parking on the street or in another lot which is NOT free. There are two lots on Madison within a couple of blocks of their parking lot. If you desire to look for on-street parking, continue on Madison, turning left at 14th, and left again on Lakeside.

Such individuals may be subject to arrest. If order cannot be restored by such removal, the members of the Commission may direct that the meeting room be cleared (except for representatives of the press or other news media not participating in the disturbance), and the session may continue on matters appearing on the agenda.
