RULES OF COURTESY
You are now participating in the process of representative government. We welcome your interest and hope you will attend Prince George's County Council meetings often. Good government depends on the interest and involvement of you and your fellow citizens.
VIRTUAL COUNCIL MEETINGS
Given the current state of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and under the Governor's "Proclamation and Declaration of State of Emergency and Existence of Catastrophic Health Emergency - COVID-19"and the Prince George's County State of Emergency Declaration, the County Council is operating under emergency procedures.
REGULAR COUNCIL MEETINGS
The Prince George's County Council meets at 10:00 a.m. each Tuesday in the Council Hearing Room in the County Administration Building, Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Legislative sessions are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month and business meetings are scheduled on the alternate weeks. All County Council Sessions are public meetings, however, a part of the meeting may be conducted in closed session.
In addition to its normal function as the County Council, the Council will frequently sit as the District Council for zoning matters or as the Board of Health. The capacity in which the Council acts on agenda items will be recorded in the minutes for each meeting.
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION IN COUNCIL MEETINGS
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.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Registration and comment submissions should be received by 3:00 p.m. on the day BEFORE the meeting. Testimony and comments will not be accepted via social media or by telephone/voice mail message.
In accordance with ADA requirements, accommodations for hearing impaired, disabled persons, and visually impaired persons can be provided upon reasonable notice to the Clerk of the Council. Sign language and interpreters for non-english speakers are available with reasonable advance notice by emailing email@example.com or calling 301-952-3600.
