This message below made me laugh out loud. One good thing about teachers is that they are bright and can say witty things. I missed the banter of the faculty lounge after I retired.
The board members are too lazy to learn Roberts Rules. They keep saying, "I want to make a motion" instead of "I move that." That gaucherie drives me crazy. lee

I can't find where in "Robert's Rules ..." the directive "Do your thing" appears. Do you have the chapter?

The 3 minute limit seems terribly restrictive - deliberately designed, perhaps, to ensure that few citizens have sufficient time to address any issue of real importance. I have a suggestion... if the board members cannot allow a reasonable length of time to citizens, they should, at the very least, apply the same 3 minute restriction to their own (so often too-lengthy and unproductive) ramblings.
