The board chambers will be open to in-person attendance at the next board meeting scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 1, at 9 a.m. To remain in compliance with the state’s public health guidance, the county will limit attendance to just 25% of the room’s capacity and will require 6 feet of social distancing inside and outside the board chambers. Face coverings are recommended and will be provided to those who want one. The meeting’s audio will also be provided outside, near the entrance of the building at 175 Fulweiler, Auburn, to allow the public to attend in person to hear the meeting while waiting for their turn to speak on a specific agenda item.
Due to the limited capacity in chambers, the public is still encouraged to participate virtually by watching the board meeting via the county’s live stream on the county’s website at www.placer.ca.gov. Closed captioning is available.
Due to the technical difficulties with Zoom on Aug. 25 and for those members of the public participating remotely, the county will not utilize Zoom on Sept. 1. Two forms of call-in options will be available: reservation and non-reservation.
Reservation for Call-in Participation: The public is encouraged to make a reservation ahead of the meeting to speak on any agenda item. During the meeting, each person with a reservation will be called back when the public comment period is opened on their specified topic. Individuals may use the reservation process to speak on as many agenda items as they wish. The number to call is 530-886-1800 and reservations can be made immediately after the agenda is posted until 8:30 a.m. on the day of the board meeting.
Non-Reservation Call-in Participation: Participants may also call in during the live meeting, but they could be on hold for a longer period without a reservation. The following is a list of helpful information to assist community members with providing public comment in a variety of ways on a posted agenda item:
The public may submit their comments in written form at the following link: https://www.placer.ca.gov/FormCenter/Clerk-of-the-Board-29/Public-Comment-Submission-157, to the Clerk of the Board at [email protected] or send correspondence through the U.S. Postal Service to Placer County, Attn: Clerk of the Board, 175 Fulweiler Avenue, Auburn, CA 95603.
