Phone message comments received by the deadline will be played at the meeting and summarized in the official record after the meeting. The public comment phone line is 407-906-2347.
Email comments and phone message comments must include: your name, a way to contact you (phone number or email), and the meeting name.

To do this, you’ll need to be logged in to the meeting through Zoom video conferencing service or a phone line. Links to our Zoom platform meetings are available on our Virtual Meetings page or in the individual event notices on our calendar.
All public comments will be audio only (no video). When the public comment period arrives on the agenda, please use the “Raise Hand” feature in Zoom (found under the participants button at the bottom of your screen) and wait to be recognized. When the chairperson calls on you,the host will unmute your microphone. You’ll be asked to provide your name and address for the record.
