+ Non-Voting member.

Every member of the Commission who is not otherwise designated as a member of this committee is an ad hoc non-voting member. Although a quorum of the Commission may be in attendance at this meeting, the committee may take action only on those matters delegated to it. The committee may not take any action as the full Commission unless this meeting has been previously noticed as a Commission meeting.

The vote of an ex-officio member shall count to satisfy a committee quorum if there are not sufficient regular members of the Committee in attendance. In addition, an ad hoc non-voting committee member who is a voting member of the Commission may be designated by the committee chairperson as a voting member for this particular committee meeting if an additional voting member is needed for a committee quorum.

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 Conduct: In the event that any public meeting conducted by MTC is willfully interrupted or disrupted by a person or by a group or groups of persons so as to render the orderly conduct of the meeting unfeasible, the Chair may order the removal of those individuals who are willfully disrupting the meeting. Such individuals may be subject to arrest. If order cannot be restored by such removal, the members of the committee 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.
