Residents of the city of Shawano who want to speak to the city council during public hearings have some new rules to follow. They include proof that they are a taxpaying resident of the city, and no profanity or interaction with council or committee members while making their comments. And this Wednesday, the city council wants to add another rule to that list….. no personal attacks. The cities of Green Bay and Appleton already have similar rules in place, and Shawano officials feel these types of guidelines are needed to maintain a level of fairness and respect during the hearings. The First Amendment Center in Washington, D.C., says these types of viewpoint neutral requirements are legal.
