The process for public comment is available in two formats; written comment or by phone. Although the public comment phone line can accommodate multiple incoming calls at once, if a member of the public should get a busy signal, please call back. Because of the possibility for a high volume of telephone calls, there could be an increased potential for technical difficulties. Citizens are therefore strongly encouraged to submit their public comments in writing prior to the date and time of public meeting.

Public Comment can be submitted in the following ways:
• To offer public comment before the Board meeting, members of the public may submit public comments online through the County’s public comment form by clicking on the following link: https://www.douglascountynv.gov/…/board_of_c…/public_comment

• Blank public comment forms will also be available in the alcove of the Historic Courthouse (1616 Eighth Street, Minden, Nevada) and completed forms may also be left at the drop box at the same location.

• Written public comments may also be mailed to the Douglas County Manager’s Office at Post Office Box 218, Minden, Nevada 89423, but all public comments must be received prior to the date of the meeting if the comments are to be included in the supplemental materials.

• All written public comments that are received prior to 4:00 PM the day before the Board meeting will be compiled and will be added as supplemental material for the County Commissioners and the public to review prior to the meeting.

• Any written public comment received the day of the Board meeting will be compiled and added as supplemental materials to the County’s website and distributed to the Board of Commissioners within 24 hours after the meeting.

When leaving a voice message, members of the public should begin their public comment by stating and spelling their full name and whether he or she favors, opposes or has no opinion on the agenda item under consideration.

• Public comment is limited to three minutes per person and will only occur at the beginning and end of the Board meeting. Public comment will not be taken on each agenda item during the meeting.
