To provide Public Comment in person:

Members of the public wishing to speak are requested to complete a yellow speaker card and submit it to the City Clerk. Comments should be kept to three minutes or less.

To provide Public Comment via Zoom Video Conference:

Live verbal public comments may be made by requesting to speak using the “raise hand” feature in Zoom or, if calling in by phone, by pressing *9 on the telephone keypad prior to the consent calendar being heard, or prior to the close of the public comment period for agenda items or non-agenda items. In response, the Town will unmute the speaker and allow them to speak up to three minutes.

To provide Public Comment in writing:

Members of the public may provide written comments by email to the City Clerk at before the meeting. Emailed comments should include the specific agenda item on which you are commenting or note that your comment concerns an item that is not on the agenda. The length of the emailed comment should be commensurate with the three minutes customarily allowed for verbal comments, which is approximately 250-300 words.

As a reminder, the Town cannot guarantee that the public’s access to the Zoom virtual platform will be uninterrupted, and technical difficulties may occur from time to time. Therefore, if you want to ensure you are able to attend the meeting and/or make public comment, you may wish to attend in person.
