Fire Council Meetings
Fire Council Meetings via Videoconference - Remote Access Guidelines
In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and the current Shelter In Place order, Fire Council meetings, and other Town Council, Board and Commission meetings, will take place via videoconference only. All members will be participating remotely and residents are urged to follow the Marin County Public Health Officer’s shelter in place order and participate in the meeting remotely as well. As allowed under Executive Order N-29-20 (March 17, 2020), the Fire Authority will no longer offer an in-person meeting location for the public to attend.
HOW TO ATTEND MEETINGS: Meetings will be videoconferenced using Zoom Webinar. Read the guidelines for viewing and participating in videoconferenced Town Meetings through Zoom Webinar here. Download Zoom Webinar here (You may need to restart your device after downloading).
Upcoming Meetings: The next Fire Council Regular Meetings are scheduled for Thursday, November 18, 2021 6:30pm, or upon conclusion of the Police Council meeting, whichever is later. (As approved by Resolution No. 2020/08, the meeting will be held on the third Thursday in November so as not to conflict with Veterans Day, which falls on the second Thursday in November)

OPPORTUNITIES TO PROVIDE PUBLIC COMMENT:
We strongly recommend submitting your public comment early by:

- Sending comments during the meeting to: PublicComment@tcmmail.org. The Chair will accept comment via email during the meeting, from 6:00pm until the adjournment of 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 Council, posted to the website, and placed in the Authority’s permanent records.
- For those participating in the meeting through the Zoom webinar link, you are able to make public comment by selecting the "Raise Hand" icon in your meeting control panel. Your raised hand will alert staff that you would like to make a public comment on that item. When the Chair calls for public comment, staff will unmute your line and call your name, at which point you may make your comments.
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. Your comment will be read verbatim, however words including profanity, obscenity, and discriminatory language will not be read into the record in order to avoid disruption of the meeting. Your comment is subject to the same 3-minute limit as in-person spoken comments.
