Members of the public have the right to speak during any posted Public Hearing. However,
those items not listed as a Public Hearing are for consideration and action by the Town
Council during the course of their business meeting. Members of the public may be allowed
to speak on these topics at the discretion of the Chair.
In accordance with Amendment #2 of the Mayoral Proclamation of Emergency issued on March 27,
2020, the following restrictions have been placed on all public meetings until further notice:
1. In-person attendance by members of the public is prohibited.
2. Members of the public can either watch the public meeting
or, if they
would like to participate in the meeting (e.g. speak at Call to Audience or speak on a Regular Agenda
item), they can attend the meeting and participate via the on-line meeting application,
, or may participate telephonically only by dialing
1-669-900-6833 prior to or during the posted meeting.
3. If a member of the public would like to speak at either Call to Audience or on a Regular Agenda
item, it is highly encouraged to email your request to speak to Bluecard@orovalleyaz.gov
your name and town/city of residence in order to provide the Mayor/Chair with advance notice so you
can be called upon more efficiently during the Zoom meeting.
4. All members of the public who participate in the Zoom meeting either with video or telephonically
will enter the meeting with microphones muted. For those participating via computer/tablet/phone
device, you may choose whether to turn your video on or not. If you have not provided your name to
speak prior to the meeting as specified in #3 above, you will have the opportunity to be recognized
when you “raise your hand.” Those participating via computer/tablet/phone device can click the “raise
your hand” button during the Call to the Public or Regular Agenda item, and the Chair will call on you
in order, following those who submit their names in advance. For those participating by phone, you
can press *9, which will show the Chair that your hand is raised. When you are recognized at the
meeting by the Chair, your microphone will be unmuted by a member of staff and you will have three
minutes to speak before your microphone is again muted.
5. If a member of the public would like to submit written comments to the Town Council for their
consideration prior to the meeting, please email those comments to email@example.com
later than sixty minutes before the public meeting. Those comments will then be electronically
distributed to the public body prior to the meeting.
If you have questions, please contact Town Clerk, Mike Standish, at 520-229-4700 or email
