Submit Public Comment to the Board of County Commissioners
To reduce the spread of COVID-19, physical distancing will be observed in the Hearing Room. A live broadcast will still be available at https://boccmeetings.jocogov.org/onbaseagendaonline and on YouTube Live.
Public comments are being accepted. Live public comments will be accepted either in-person or via Zoom, audio only. Individuals wishing to speak in-person or via Zoom may register by completing this registration form. Individuals wishing to speak In-Person, may also signup In-Person by 9:20 a.m. prior to the meeting. Online registration opens Tuesday afternoon/evening (coincides with publishing the agenda) and closes at noon (12 p.m.) on the Wednesday before the Thursday meeting.
If you complete the registration, you will receive an email notice regarding the status of your registration. Instructions on joining and speaking at the meeting via Zoom will be included in the email notice for individuals who register to speak virtually.
Speakers will be limited to two (2) minutes each. If needed, the BOCC has established a limit of 50 speakers for general public comments or for a specific agenda item, if the Chairman so choses. If more than 50 individuals register and are limited, the 50 speakers will be determined by a random process. If you are not chosen in the selection process, those that are virtual will be notified by email and those in-person will be notified with the “selected” being posted at the meeting.
Registered speakers using Zoom will be called upon to speak by the Deputy Clerk in the order in which they signed up. The chairman may modify these procedures as needed to conduct an orderly and efficient meeting.
