This booklet has been prepared for the convenience of the Montverde Town Council In discussing matters before them.  Every effort has been made to include all items to be discussed at this Town Council Meeting, however, the Mayor or Council Members may add items, which are not part of this Agenda, or items may be removed from consideration.  While it has been the goal to present error-free information, we do not represent that documentation is without errors or omissions.

In addition to regular Council Meetings, the Mayor or Town Council may, from time to time, schedule a workshop during which they will receive information from Staff, have discussions with Staff and among themselves, and then proceed to give Staff direction on the subject matter being discussed unless otherwise shows on the Agenda item.  These discussions and workshops do not take the place of the formal public hearing process during which any member of the public may comment and formal action is taken.

The Council and Staff welcome written comments prior to workshops and other meetings.  If you have comments or questions regarding the subject matter of any Council action or workshop, please deliver your written comments to the appropriate Town Staff or mail to the Town of Montverde, P.O.
