Aurora lawmakers keep public comment portion of regular meetings

Aurora Sentinel: Aurora City Council meetings will not change structure to feature an hour-long public forum and eliminate the current public invited to be heard section at the beginning of meetings.

A proposal, which was backed by Councilwoman Nicole Johnston, didn’t earn enough council support to be implemented. It would have set up a televised public forum to start at 6 p.m., before city council meetings, and end by the regular city council meeting start time, 7:30 p.m.

Denver operates on a similar model. Two times each month the city hosts a 30-minute public comment section. Each speaker gets three minutes to speak on any topic that is not scheduled for a public hearing.
