Town of Davidson Offers Additional Option for Public Comment
In response to the Town of Davidson’s recent decision to move to virtual board of commissioners meetings, the town will be offering an additional on screen option for virtual public comment. Full details are available below:
- Email: The public will be allowed to comment by sending written comments via email to email@example.com of no more than 400 words. These comments will then be read aloud at the meeting by the Town Clerk. In keeping with the board’s current procedures, only one (1) three-minute of verbal reading will be allowed per email. The deadline to submit by email is 5:00 pm on Tuesday, August 24.
- Phone: The public will be able to call (704) 940-9614 and leave a voicemail message in order to provide public comment. These messages will be played during public comment periods, and will be limited to three minutes. The deadline to submit by phone is 5:00 pm on Tuesday, August 24.
- NEW – On Screen Public Comment during the meeting: The public will be allowed to speak on screen during the virtual public comment period. Register for the meeting here from the link on the agenda and email firstname.lastname@example.org to request On Screen Public Comment. The deadline to register and email the clerk is 5:00 pm on Tuesday, August 24. When appropriate and prompted by the Town Clerk, the community member will be promoted to a panelist and will be allowed to speak for three minutes. At the conclusion of the community member’s public comment, the clerk will then remove them as a panelist and return them to attendee mode.
If you have questions, please reach out to Davidson Town Clerk Betsy Shores at 704-940-9614.
