Please note there is a three minute public participation time limit and the Commission may also limit repetitive comments on the same subject matter. Please be sure to observe proper meeting etiquette when addressing the commission. The facilitator will allow only one person to speak at a time. Thank you for your patience as you wait to be called on.

All pre-meeting comments must be received by 8:30 a.m. on 5-26-20 in order to be distributed to the Utilities Commissioners and read into the public record during the virtual meeting by the facilitator. Please note the submitted public participation forms during the meeting must support time limits of no more than three (3) minutes and the Commission may also limit repetitive comments on the same subject matter.
