Aurora City Council rule changes could limit public comment, allow lawmakers and police to accept gifts

Aurora Sentinel: Aurora’s conservative lawmakers showed interest Tuesday in limiting public comment at meetings, relaxing rules on gifts and making it tougher for staff to bring controversial agenda items without a council sponsor.

At a Feb. 22 ad hoc committee meeting, a subset of council members walked through changes they’d like to see made to the group’s rules and procedures.

On the subject of public invited to be heard — designated times at the start and end of council meetings when the public can make comments about topics not on the group’s agenda — council members spoke of eliminating the second comment period and limiting the first period to an hour.
