How to give public comment during June 17 Listening Session

June 15, 2020 – News, Notices for Public Comment

To hear citizen concerns related to local issues on policing, racism, and social justice, the City and Borough of Juneau is hosting a Listening Session through Zoom this Wednesday, June 17 at 7 p.m. Juneau Assembly members, Juneau Police Department leadership, the Juneau School District superintendent, and the Juneau School Board have been invited to listen.

Participate in the June 17 Listening Session at 7 p.m. by connecting directly to the Zoom Webinar https://juneau.zoom.us/j/99130137784 or calling 1-346-248-7799 with Webinar ID 991 3013 7784; the Listening Session will also be on Facebook Live.

The online event is meant to be a starting point of an ongoing community conversation. This is a forum for invited attendees to listen to local concerns. The Listening Session will kick off with brief introductions, followed by public testimony. Here’s how to give public comment and other things to note:

  • If you are participating through Zoom on a computer or smart device, click the “Raise Hand” button.
  • If you’re participating by phone, press *9.
  • The City Clerk will go down the list of people wanting to comment, note their name or phone number and unmute them. At that time, the person commenting should state their name and the area of Juneau they live in, and will have a set amount of time to speak.
  • While the Listening Session will be broadcast on Facebook Live, public testimony will only be taken through Zoom or phone.

Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to send comments, concerns, and questions to BoroughAssembly@juneau.org.
