Public Comment Practices

The Public Health Advisory Committee (PHAC) welcomes public input on public health matters. The PHAC may ask clarifying questions of the public during the meeting, but it will not make immediate decisions based on public comment; however, the PHAC may take comments under advisement for discussion and action at a future meeting.

Speakers will be taken in the order in which they sign up and will be limited to 3 minutes per comment. Public comment will be limited to 21 minutes. The chair reserves the right to shorten the time allocated to each speaker or extend the time allocated for public comment.
