Overview

In an effort to keep members of the public and all staff as safe as possible during the current COVID-19 health crisis, and to comply with the State of Maryland’s Safer at Home recommendation and Governor Hogan’s Executive Order limiting public gatherings the County Council will conduct all meetings virtually until further notice.  As such, public testimony will now be accepted online.

How to Submit

Online testimony can be submitted by clicking on one of the buttons below and filling out the resulting form.

You may submit written testimony of up to 250 words that includes your contact information and the specific bill or resolution or other subject at issue. ALL testimony submitted online is received and reviewed by the entire Council as it is submitted. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN SELECTING A BILL OR RESOLUTION NUMBER FROM THE DROP DOWN LIST TO ENSURE IT IS THE SPECIFIC PIECE OF LEGISLATION ON WHICH YOU WISH TO SUBMIT TESTIMONY. Testimony on a bill or resolution listed on the current agenda for the meeting that is submitted for Invitation to Audience through the general testimony tool will not be counted because testimony through Invitation to Audience may not be on a bill or resolution that is on the agenda.
