How To Participate

Public comments will be accepted from individuals attending the meeting in-person or virtually through the Zoom Webinar.

Speaking Times

Generally, each speaker will have a maximum of three minutes per item. In cases where many comments are expected, speakers may be limited to two minutes or another time limitation if appropriate. Pooling of speaker time will be permitted at the discretion of the chair. All speakers wishing to pool their time must be signed up for and present at the meeting. Time allotted for pooled speakers will be determined by the chair, not to exceed a total of ten minutes (or eight minutes where many comments are expected). Speakers are requested not to repeat statements made by previous speakers other than to express points of agreement or disagreement.
