How to Provide Public Comment

Below are general public commenting guidelines. Guidelines may be viewed in their entirety in the Council Rules of Order, Section 5 (available to download online):

  1. The sign-up deadline for public comment for that day’s meeting is at least one hour before the scheduled commencement of the council meeting. You can sign up by completing the public comment form

  2. Persons addressing the Council may state their name and city of residence for the record and speak for two (2) minutes or less.

  3. Burien residents, business owners or representatives, and employees who identify Burien as their home or business location may be prioritized for public comments. Nonresidents may sign up for public comment.

  4. The public may submit written comments to the Council through the City Clerk. Since written comments are meant to inform the council, written statements will not be read to the Council.

  5. All public comments must be addressed to the Council.

  6. Consistent with RCW 42.30.050, the Council may enforce the Council Rules of Order by removing disruptive people from meetings. 

You can find agendas, minutes, and other information about council meetings in the online meeting center.
