(Richmond, IN)--Richmond Common Council President Jamie Lopeman has laid out specific guidelines for public comment when the controversial bicycle Loop project goes before council on Monday night. Lopeman filed the guidelines with the clerk’s office and said that public comment will be limited 30 minutes each for those in favor and those opposing an ordinance involving the loop. Each speaker will be limited to two minutes. Public commenters must first sign up at the clerk’s office with a deadline of noon on Monday. Speakers will be taken on a first-come, first serve basis. If the guidelines are rigidly enforced, it means that only the first 8-10 people to sign up on each side of the issue will be permitted to speak.
