To help minimize the potential spread of COVID-19 through physical distancing, the Hawai‘i County Council will no longer be taking oral public testimony from conference rooms located at the Kona Council Office and Hawai‘i County Building.
Beginning September 1, 2020, oral public testimony will be received via WebEx.
Persons wishing to provide oral public testimony may register to do so by emailing je*************@ha**********.gov or calling (808) 961-8255 no later than 12:00 p.m. on the business day preceding the applicable meeting of the County Council and its committees.
Each meeting agenda will include contact and registration information to provide oral public testimony, a reminder that the meetings of the County Council are available for viewing via live stream, how to provide written testimony, and a notice that the meetings remain closed to the public.
The Office of the County Clerk and Hawai‘i County Council appreciate your patience, understanding, and cooperation as we do our best to provide convenient access to government services while also taking active measures to minimize physical contact and the potential spread of COVID-19.
