Note, as always, citizen comments are not available during Finance and Committee of the Whole worksessions. However, citizens are able to listen or attend these meetings in person.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN TESTIFYING TELEPHONICALLY
Public testimony will be heard from citizens in the order in which they have signed up. The Clerk will call those citizens who have signed up to testify at the phone number provided when it is their turn to speak. The call you receive will likely come from an out-of-state number. You will hear an automated voice asking you to press the number 1 to join the meeting. Please note: If you do not answer the phone we will move to the next person on list. Once you are placed into the meeting the Presiding Officer will ask that you state your name, spell your last name, and provide your neighborhood or place of residence for the record, then your 3 minutes will begin.
Helpful Hints: You will be called by an out-of-state number. Once you answer, you will be asked to press the number 1 to join the meeting. If you are listening to the meeting on another device, turn it down or off when it is your turn to speak. Speak clearly and loudly. Wait to be called on by the Presiding Officer.
