Remote Meeting Call-In

Beginning April 7, 2022, the Board of Supervisors and its Committee will convene hybrid meetings that will allow in-person attendance, remote access, and public comment via teleconference. Individuals attending meetings in-person will be allowed to provide public comment before those who call in to provide it remotely.
