Written public comments may be emailed in advance of the meeting. Please read the following instructions carefully:
- Your written comment should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Members of the public are limited to one comment per agenda item.
- The length of the emailed comment should be commensurate with the two minutes customarily allowed for verbal comments, which is approximately 250-300 words.
- If your emailed comment is received by 5:00 p.m. on the day before the meeting, it will be provided to the Members of the Board and made publicly available on the agenda website under the specific item to which your comment pertains. If emailed comments are received after 5:00p.m. on the day before the meeting, the Clerk will make every effort to either (i) provide such emailed comments to the Board and make such emails publicly available on the agenda website prior to the meeting, or (ii) read such emails during the meeting.
