Public comment at Fairfield-Suisun School District board meetings will be moved up to allow people to speak earlier in the meeting and avoid long waits while trustees take up other agenda matters.
“It’s going to make for more participation,” Trustee Joan Gaut said of the change.
People who want to comment about matters not on the agenda sometimes had to wait between a half-hour and two hours, Gaut said.
Suisun City resident George Guynn Jr. said the school district once had public comment near the start of the meeting and is happy to see the change.
