County supports virtual attendance, participation in April 28 board meeting

Residents can watch and give comments online

Henrico residents interested in participating in the Tuesday, April 28 meeting of the Board of Supervisors will be able to provide public comments from home with the aid of a video-conferencing tool.

The meeting will take at 7 p.m. in the Government Center Board Room at 4301 E. Parham Road and will be livestreamed on the county’s website.

Individuals may register to speak during the public comment period. After signing up, they will receive a confirmation email with instructions for participating.

Registration is not required to participate in the public comment period, however.

Individuals interested in speaking also may go online to the WebEx Event when the meeting begins at 7 p.m. A moderator will prompt participants when it is their turn to comment; each speaker will be given five minutes. Participants who register in advance will speak first.

In-person attendance in the Board Room has been limited to 10 individuals since March 24, when the county began conducting the board’s meetings in accordance with the state’s 10-person limit on gatherings. That limit has included board members and county staff as well as any residents or others attending.

The board’s meetings remain open to the public. Individuals who attend may be asked to remain in the lobby outside the Board Room or may be directed to a nearby area to accommodate the 10-person limit.

Individuals who would like to speak in person during the public comment period will be directed to a microphone in the Board Room at the appropriate time. Comments will not be given from the lectern.
