The Placer County Board of Supervisors’ meetings will be conducted telephonically as the Board Chambers will not be open to the public. In compliance with the Governor’s orders on telephonic meetings, the public’s participation will be received through the following means:
· Citizens who wish to comment may call 530-886-1800 to be added to our Call-Back List. Public Comment will be opened for each agenda item in sequence, so those who have signed up should be prepared for a staff member to call them back for the specific item when the Board Chair opens public comments for that item. After those signed up on Call-Back List have provided verbal comments, the Chair will announce that public comments are closed for that item.
· Calls will be answered by the County Operator and names will be added in order received to the Call-Back List for any agenda item where the public comment has not been closed.
· Each commenter is entitled to 3 minutes of comment time, so being called back to be put in the queue to speak may take some time if there are many citizens signed up on the Call Back list for a particular item. Thank you for your patience as we work to preserve the safety and health of all meeting participants and ensure that each citizen who wishes to comment has the opportunity to do so.
· Alternatively, citizens 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.
