On behalf of fellow board members, I invite any member of the audience to approach the board with comments about items of interest or concern.

Also, please remember you are making comments in a public meeting.  Should you make comments that the subject of the comments is considered to be inflammatory or libelous, you, as an individual, may be subject to legal action brought by the subject of your comments.
