The Prince George's County Council will meet virtually until further notice.  To encourage civic engagement, the Council has established an eComment portal to serve as an alternative method of public participation in the Council's virtual meetings.  The portal allows citizens to register to speak on agenda items that are scheduled for public hearing and/or submit a comment or letter into the official public record, in lieu of verbal testimony. You may comment via the eComment portal, by telephone during the hearing, by email or by fax.

The eComment portal will be activated at 5:00 p.m. on the Friday preceding a meeting agenda.  Please note, that written testimony or comments will be accepted in electronic format, rather than by U.S. mail.  For those unable to use the portal, comments/written correspondence may be emailed to: clerkofthecouncil@co.pg.md.us or faxed to (301) 952-5178.  All testimony and comments received by the deadline will become part of the public record of the meeting and, when feasible, shared and noted at the meeting. Testimony and comments will not be accepted via social media or by telephone voice mail message.

View meetings by selecting the "In Progress" link next to the meeting on the Council's live streaming page: https://pgccouncil.us/LIVE. Comment submissions should be received by 3:00 p.m. on the day BEFORE the meeting, unless otherwise noted below.
