Douglas County Public Meeting Information Submitting Public CommentMinden NV- Douglas County continues to provide access to Board of County Commissioner and Planning Commission meetings online, livestreamed through YouTube and is reminding the public about two upcoming meetings. 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 encouraged to submit their public comments in writing prior to the date and time of public meeting.
The following are upcoming public meetings:
