Procedures & Forms

Call to Action & Meeting Procedures:

    
    CALL TO ACTION:

        Community members, committees, and guests may ask the council board to take action on any issue of importance to them.

        Ways to ask for action:

            • Request that an item be placed on the agenda

            • Request to be a person to be heard

            • Request that a committee address an item

        Requests for action by the council should follow these guidelines:

            • Describe issue

            • Provide background info/data

            • Describe how the issue directly impacts the Talkeetna Community Council area

           • Provide evidence of broad community support

            • Describe proposed action and desired outcome

            • Provide information on any deadlines by which action must be taken

        Possible outcomes are as follows:

            • Board vote on proposed action

            • Referral to a committee

            • Deferral to the next month’s meeting

            • Call for a community-wide vote on a major issue if the board is not comfortable making a decision.

            • No action


     AGENDA:

            • Members, committees, and guests desiring an item to appear on the agenda should present it to the council before 5PM on the Thursday before the                 meeting.  This may be done by contacting TCCI by email, mail or phone.

            • An item presented after 5PM the Thursday before the meeting but before the adoption of the agenda at the meeting should be sponsored by a board                 member.  The board member can make a motion to add the item to the agenda. A majority vote will add the item to the agenda. Sponsorship                            should be arranged by contacting a board member directly.

            • Adding an item to the agenda after the agenda is adopted requires a motion by a board member and will be added after a 2/3 majority vote.


        PERSONS TO BE HEARD:

            • Anyone can address the board and assembled community members with any concern he/she may have.

            • Members and guests can request in advance to be on the agenda as a person to be heard, or sign in at the beginning of the meeting.

            • Time limit of about 3 minutes. Questions will be allowed, but no discussion. If immediate action is desired, any board member can ask
                  for a vote of the board to add the item to the current agenda.

            • Guests and members who need more time can request in advance a longer time period for a presentation. 
                  Unless they are time-sensitive, such presentations will be limited to one 
per meeting.


        COMMITTEES:

        • Present issues to a committee by following that committee’s guidelines. (See COMMITTEE tab)

    Please send your email to contact@talkeetnacouncil.org, mail to our post office box 608 or contact one of the board members directly.
