Reason for allowing participation by electronic means:

Except for any closed session portions of the meeting, members of the public will be able to hear (and possibly see) members of the public body during the entire meeting, but will only be able to speak during a public comment period.

Members of the public participating in either public comment via Zoom or telephone will wait in a virtual queue until called during the public comment period. Because of limitations on un-muting and re-muting members of the public, there will be only one public comment period for each meeting.
When public comment is permitted, members of the public will be called one at a time, as would happen during an in-person meeting. A meeting coordinator will determine the order of public speakers. If you want to speak, you must use the "Raise Hand" feature in order for our moderator to know they need to be unmuted. Alternatively, you may use the *9 feature if participating by phone. When you are unmuted you will have three (3) minutes to share your comments to the public body. At the conclusion of your comments or your three (3) minutes, you will be re-muted and then removed from the queue.
Participants may also choose to submit comments that can be read into the record. Comments can be submitted via an electronic form to:
