Public comment:

Live meeting comment

Make a verbal public comment during a meeting. The public comment phone line will open 15-minutes prior to the start of the meeting. Refer to the agenda and listen to the live meeting to determine when is the best time to call to be placed in queue to make a public comment. Callers may be on hold for up to an extended period of time and should plan accordingly. Dial (916) 875-2500 and follow the prompts to be placed in queue for a specific agenda item or off-agenda matter. When the Chair opens public comment for a specific agenda item or off-agenda matter, callers will be transferred from the queue into the meeting to make a verbal comment. Each agenda item queue will remain open until the public comment period is closed for that specific item.


Requests for accommodations pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) should be made with the Clerk's Office by telephone at (916) 874-5411 (voice) and CA Relay Services 711 (for the hearing impaired) or email at prior to the meeting.
