WSKG Policy on public comment at CAB Meetings

WSKG Community Advisory Board welcomes relevant constructive comment from the public at its meetings.  The CAB encourages input from all individuals and groups across the station's listening and viewing area.  So that the process will be efficient and productive, the following protocol is established:

  1. A "Public Comment" line will be included in the agenda for all regular Community Advisory Board meetings.  The comment period will be at the start of the meeting after the adoption of the meeting's agenda and prior to the start of old and new Business.
  2. The total time for public comments will be limited to twenty (20) minutes, with each person limited up to five (5) minutes. Priority recognition will be given to those persons who have not previously addressed the CAB.
  3. Comments made at CAB meetings, or written inquiries sent to the CAB, must be relevant to the CAB's functions and responsibilities, i.e., programming and/or community involvement.
  4. Public comments, and any matter submitted, where a response is requested from the CAB must be in writing (e-mail is acceptable) and submitted to the CAB Chairman. All written responses will be processed in a timely manner but may take up to 30 days to allow time for review by the station's Board of Trustees, management, and/or WSKG's General Counsel.
  5. Special CAB meetings, such as public forums, may be held for the sole purpose of gathering public input.  For such meetings, this policy can be suspended by CAB directive.
  6. This policy is subject to cancellation or modification, at any time, in the discretion of the CAB.

This policy will be published on WSKG's web site, will be available at WSKG's front desk, and will be handed out to the public at CAB meetings. WSKG's management and staff are also available to hear and respond to public comments. Submit a comment to WSKG directly here.
