DR. KIBBE: Okay. We're scheduled to take a break at 9:30 and it is 9:08. There are a few things that we can do during that break and then perhaps we could get started with the next set of speakers a little sooner and that would give us a little more breathing room. We have, I think, 12 or so people who have scheduled to speak during the open public hearing.
Those who have scheduled to speak at the open public hearing, if you're here and you're ready to start early, if you'll be prepared to go when we finish with our next topic, that would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you have not already checked in with staff, Kathleen Reedy would like to see you to make sure the slides and everything are all lined up.
For the members of the committee, don't forget to fill out your little lunch thing and they'll be around to pick that up.
And all the copies of everything that we have that we're looking forward to hearing today are either in your little purple folders or copied for you. If we get additional stuff, we'll get it out to you.
That being said, why don't we take a 15-minute
