Thirty Citizens Selected to Speak at Tonight’s CIP Mtg.

County Communications Manager Julie Habiger calls out ticket numbers for the 30 residents who will speak during the 90 minutes set aside for public comment, which starts in a few minutes. Fire Marshal Brian Nickerson is drawing the numbers from a bowl behind the podium. Nickerson is on hand this evening to ensure the massive crowd does not exceed the maximum capacity allowed by law for Council Chambers, which is 124, according to a sign posted on the wall.

These five chairs are reserved for the citizens who will be called, five at a time, to sit near the podium so they can move quickly when called to speak in an effort to keep the public comment period tonight to 90 minutes. Photo by Carol A.
