The purpose of the Consent Calendar is to expedite business by grouping non-controversial items together to be dealt with by one Commission on Aging motion without discussion. Any member of the board, staff, or the public may ask that any item on the Consent Calendar be removed and placed elsewhere on the agenda for full discussion. Such requests will be automatically respected.

If any item is not removed from the Consent Calendar, the action noted is approved by a single Commission on Aging action adopting the Consent Calendar.
