Yanceyville Town Council
February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
The Yanceyville Town Council meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7pm.
The Town Council is responsible for setting the policies that guide Town Administration. The Town Council is responsible for setting the tax rate and water and sewer rates within the Town. Additional duties of the Town Council are to bring economic and community development to the Town, determine services provided to citizens, and ensure the community remains fiscally and socially healthy and prosperous.
The Yanceyville Town Council requests and encourages comments and involvement from members of the community. In order to facilitate your involvement in the process of local government decision-making, the Yanceyville Town Council has established several methods for you to publicly address the governing body.
They are as follows:
- Sign up for Public Comment at the Start of the Meeting A Public Comment period occurs at the beginning of every regularly scheduled meeting of the Yanceyville Town Council. If you have a concern you wish the Council to hear, then sign-up any time prior to the start of the meeting. A sign-up sheet is provided at the meeting as you enter the Council Chambers. Those who sign-up for the citizen comment period are asked to limit your comment to 3 minutes, as the Public Comment portion of the meeting is limited to 15 minutes total. If there are a number of groups or individuals, commenting on the same issue or concern, the Mayor reserves the right to ask that a speaker be appointed from the group to make the presentation. The Town Council also reserves the right not to act on requests first presented at the same meeting.
- Ask a Town Council Member to be Placed on the Agenda For any meeting of the Yanceyville Town Council (a regular meeting, a special called meeting, or an emergency meeting) anyone may ask a council member to be added to the agenda prior to the meeting. A motion must be made by the requesting Council member to add an individual to the Agenda. That motion must have a second, followed by a majority vote before the person would be placed on the Agenda for that meeting. It will be up to the Town Council to decide if a citizen, group, or organization that is not already part of such meeting agenda’s called purpose is to be permitted to address the Council during the meeting.
