Public Participation for Virtual Meetings
If you would like to take part in the public participation section of the virtual meeting please:
- Inform the Town Clerk of any question you may have for any item on the agenda before the meeting. The deadline for this will be stated on the agenda. The Council will review any questions during the virtual meeting.
- You may also join the Zoom meeting by following the instructions above. Please note that your microphone will be active only when you have indicated that you wish to speak during the Public Participation item and muted during the rest of the meeting but you will still be able to see and hear the meeting discussions throughout. Members of the public can comment on any item on the agenda. Any other comments will be only allowed at the Chairman's discretion.
- The Public Participation section will be limited to 15 minutes in total, as usual.
