Citizen comment comes first under new meeting plan / March 01, 2018

The Halifax County Board of Supervisors will change the format for citizens to make public comments at board meetings.

The changes, announced Wednesday by County Administrator Jim Halasz, will allow citizens to air their thoughts at the beginning of monthly board meetings, after advertised public hearings on the agenda schedule are conducted.

Prior to this time, public comments were received only at the end of supervisors’ meetings.

The change will become effective with the Board’s next meeting, Monday, March 5.

Halasz reminds residents that they are subject to a three-minute time limit in offering their comments, unless the speaker gets prior permission from the board chairman to speak longer.

Halasz also reminds speakers that they must address their comments to the members of the board and not to individuals.

Anyone with questions about the change may call the office of the County Administrator at (434) 476-3300, ext 8.
