  • Speak clearly into the microphone. 
  • Give you name and address after being acknowledged. If requested, please spell your last name.

  • State your issue clearly and succinctly.
  • Be specific. Make your announcement or address your concern, what was done or what you have already tried to do, and specifically what you want to see done to resolve the issue.
