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 3:00 P.M. the day of the meeting will be distributed to the entire Committee 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 Committee, posted to the Town website, and placed in the Town’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 Town staff that you would like to make a public comment on that item. When the Chair calls for public comment, Town staff will unmute your line and call your name, at which point you may make your comments. Please note that you will not be able to select the Raise Hand icon and be called upon for public comment if you do not register for the meeting, and will need to pick a different method, such as emailing comments in advance, in order to submit public comment.
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.
