If you do not see the session below that you are interested in, please check back after the legislation has been introduced.

Starting September 20, 2021, in-person testimony will resume at the George Howard Building. Masks are required! If you are unable to participate in person, a virtual option will be made available. When signing up, please indicate how you will be testifying (in-person or virtually). The sign up system will close at 7pm the night of the Public Hearing. If you sign up to testify virtually, you will receive instructions on how to participate in the virtual meeting. Individuals will be allowed 3 minutes to testify and organizations will be allowed 5 minutes to testify.

At this time, the County Council is not accepting requests for public testimony on new legislation. Please check back 24-48 hours after new legislation is introduced.
