County Commissioners Give the Public More Opportunity to Address Them

Beginning next month, the public gets additional time to address Crawford County commissioners about issues facing the county, but not without some words of caution from one of the commissioners.

At their meeting Wednesday, commissioners unanimously voted to reinstate a second public comment period — up to a total of 15 minutes at the end of each regular meeting for items that may come before the board, but aren't listed on that meeting's agenda. Each speaker would be granted up to three minutes to address commissioners. However, commissioners may waive those time limits if the board chooses.

The new policy adding the second public comment period goes into effect with the commissioners' March 9 board meeting.

The public has an up-to-30-minute comment period at the start of a board meeting for public input on agenda items with a maximum of three minutes per speaker. Those who want to speak must give at least two business days advance notice to the county’s chief clerk.
