Prince George County Public Meeting Process
During COVID-19 Pandemic

Applies to any County public meeting until June 10, per Governor Northam’s Executive Order 55. 

A quorum of the Board of Supervisors shall meet in person.  Up to two board members may call in via phone.  The Board shall be spaced apart on the dais with the County Administrator and County Attorney seated in the audience area. 

There shall be 10 or less in the room at all times.  The audio in the hallway will remain on for people outside the boardroom.  Media will be allowed in the boardroom. 

The meeting will be live streamed using YouTube Live, a free service, via the County channel.

Staff will provide updates on the County Facebook and Twitter page for those who cannot video stream due to poor internet/cell service or data costs.

There are three types of public comments:

1)      General Public Comments at the beginning of Board meetings.
2)      Public Hearing Comments on specific public hearing topics.
3)      Planning Commission Comments during Planning Commission meetings.

There are two options to provide public comments:

1)      Appear in person at the meeting.  All citizens will be lined-up in the hallway spaced six feet apart at the direction of staff.  A moderator will call in public speakers one at a time to the podium.  The public speakers will leave the boardroom once finished.

2)      Using the Prince George County website public comment form. We request that all public comments be submitted before 5pm on meeting days so that the members will have a chance to review the comments.  Comments will be sent directly to the County Board and appropriate County staff.  General Public Comments will not be included in the official minutes after the public comment period closes on the meeting day per the time noted by the Clerk.  Public Hearing Comments will not be included in the official minutes after the public hearing closes on the meeting day per the time noted by the Clerk.

PGC Guest Wi-Fi will be available in the building using the password: pgcguest
