Also, to facilitate public comment during virtual Council public hearings, the Council has established an eComment portal. Residents and stakeholders can register electronically to speak, or to submit a comment or letter into the official public record, in lieu of verbal testimony.

Written testimony or comment will be accepted in electronic format, rather than by U.S. mail. For those unable to use the portal, comment/written correspondence may be emailed to: clerkofthecouncil@co.pg.md.us or faxed to (301) 952-5178. All testimony and comment received by the deadline will become part of the testimony. Comment will not be accepted via social media or by telephone/voice mail message.
