Virtual Board of Commissioners meeting April 21

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 - 8:24am

In accordance with Wake County’s Stay-at-Home Order, the Board of Commissioners (BOC) meeting on Tuesday, April 21, at 7 p.m. will be conducted virtually and not open to on-site visitors. The virtual meeting will allow the Board to conduct the important business of government, while protecting the health and safety of the Commissioners, the public and Town staff. The only individuals expected to be physically in attendance are the Mayor and Commissioners, the Town Manager, Town Clerk and Town Attorney. All will be seated in a manner that ensures proper social and physical distancing.

The April 21 meeting agenda will be available online at https://bit.ly/TOWFPublicMeetingPortal no later than 5 p.m. Thursday, April 16.

The BOC is providing two opportunities for public comment: 1) by submitting written comment and 2) by calling into the meeting to provide oral testimony. Anyone wishing to provide public comment virtually (written or orally) must complete and submit the online comment form at https://bit.ly/TOWFPublicMeetingPortal by 7 p.m. Monday, April 20. 

Members of the public wishing to provide oral testimony will receive directions via email for how to participate remotely no later than 4 p.m. on April 21. Please note: When completing the online comment form, you must provide the telephone number from which you will be calling. During the public comment portion of the meeting, if Town officials do not recognize your telephone number, you will not be allowed to enter the meeting.

The Town Clerk will compile and distribute to the Board of Commissioners all written comments received at least 24 hours prior to the start of the meeting. The clerk will read into the record the names of everyone who submitted comments. The comments will be made part of the permanent official record.
