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:
· The Board proceedings are available via Zoom and you may also participate in Public Comment by using the “raise hand” function https://placer-ca-gov.zoom.us/j/98024219712
· Citizens who wish to comment may call 530-886-1800 to be added to our Call-Back List prior to 8:00a.m. the day of the meeting. Public Comment will be opened for each agenda item, 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.
· 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.
