Members of the public are invited to view meetings live using Zoom client, which also allows them to “raise a hand” and contribute with voice and video when they are invited to do so during public portions of the meeting. When you join the meeting, you will first enter a “waiting room” and then be admitted to the meeting by the moderator. Your microphone will be off (muted) and your camera (if you have one) will not send video to other participants. If you are a speaking participant, the moderator will enable your mic and permit you to enable your video at the appropriate time to participate in the hearing.
Members of the public may introduce evidence during the public comment portion of the hearing. In order to facilitate the distribution of any evidence to the Board and its professionals, it must be submitted electronically to the Board Administrator a minimum of three (3) business days before the hearing. The evidence must be introduced at the hearing by whomever submitted the evidence. Evidence not submitted electronically in advance of the hearing will be considered at the discretion of the Board.
