Public Input: Time will be allocated on the agenda to hear public comments from 3:30pm to 4:00pm on November 9. The time for oral comments will be limited to two (2) minutes per individual. Individuals who wish to make a public comment should register by emailing your name and organizational affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Thursday, November 5. Registered commenters will receive both a dial-in number and a link to choose from to join the meeting virtually. Comments can also be submitted to be read for you during the Public Comment session; they must be received by November 5.
NOTE: There may be a 30-45 second delay in the livestream video presentation of the conference.
