Public's right to speak questioned at meetings

Theodora Rusnak, Citrus County Council

A small, but vocal, group of Citrus County residents asked the county commission on Tuesday to restore things to the way they were before the BOCC voted to change the order of "Open to the Public" comments at BOCC meetings.

The group has been lobbying commissioners during the past two commission meetings to modify an ordinance that governs public comment during governmental meetings which was modeled to comply with Senate Bill 50, passed by the Florida Legislature earlier this year.
