PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PROCEDURES:
The board chambers will be open to in-person attendance. To remain in compliance with the state’s public health guidance, the county will limit in-person attendance to just 25% of the room’s capacity and will require 6 feet of social distancing inside and outside chambers. There will be no standing room in chambers. If all seats are occupied, citizens will be asked to wait outside chambers. Due to the reduced capacity we ask that citizens only be in chambers during the item they wish to participate on and then leave to allow others to participate in chambers. The entire meeting will be available on livestream and will also be broadcast outside the building.
For those not in attendance Public Comment for the Board Meeting will be offered telephonically into the Board Chambers. Citizens who wish to speak on an Agenda item can sign up to provide public comment using the County’s public comment reservation system by calling 530-886-1800 until 8:30am the day of the meeting. Staff will call the citizens who have signed up to speak when the Chair calls for public comment on the item they requested. Public Comment will be opened for each agenda item, and citizens may also call in during the meeting when the Board Chair announces the item. Please note there is a slight delay in the livestream and citizens who do not use the reservation system are encouraged to call in when the item is announced instead of waiting for the Chair to formally open up the public comment for the item. Calls will be taken on a first come basis and there may be a wait time. Calls will not be connected if Public Comment has been closed for that item, and callers will be directed to call back if they are calling for a later agenda item.
**Sign-ups for Public Comment will be accepted starting at the posting of this agenda**
