OPPORTUNITIES TO PROVIDE PUBLIC COMMENT

We strongly recommend submitting your public comment early by:

  • Sending comments prior to the meeting to: PublicComment@tcmmail.org.  All public comment received prior to 5:00 P.M. the day of the meeting will be distributed to the entire Board and made available to the public in the online agenda packet. 
  • Sending comments during the meeting to: PublicComment@tcmmail.org. The Town will accept public comment via email during the meeting. All public comment received via email will be read aloud by staff at the appropriate time on the agenda for each agenda item, forwarded to the Board, posted to the Town website, and placed in the Town’s permanent records.  
  • When participating in a meeting through Zoom webinar, you may select the "Raise Hand" Icon in the Zoom platform, or dial *9 if you have called into the meeting, in order to add yourself to the speaker queue during the meeting. Your raised hand will alert the presiding officer and the Town Clerk that you would like to make a public comment on that item. When the Mayor calls for public comment, either the presiding officer or the Town Clerk will unmute your line and call your name at which point you may make your comments. If you are joining the meeting via Zoom on either a computer, tablet, or smartphone, the Raise Hand icon will be at either the bottom or top of your screen, depending on the device. Click here for more information on how to raise your hand during the webinar.

For all public comment submitted, please be sure to indicate the item number to which your comment is related, or whether it is for the general public comment period at the beginning of the meeting, Open Time for Public Comment.
