Speak at a Meeting

Commissioners set aside a 45 minute period at the beginning of a Regular BOCC meeting to hear from the public. To sign up to speak, please fill out the Public Comment Form at the sign-in table outside the Boardroom. The Chairman will call on speakers by name.  Citizens speaking on scheduled agenda items will be called before those speaking on non-scheduled agenda items. Prioritization is on a first-come first-served basis.

  • Up to three minutes are allowed for each speaker
  • Give your name and address before your remarks.
  • Contact HTV by email or call (813) 272-5314 no later than 24 hours before the meeting if you have an audio, video or PowerPoint component to your presentation
  • Make at least 11 copies of any handouts for Commissioners, County Administrator, the County Attorney and two for the Clerk
