Polk County Board Chair Chris Nelson is not allowing public participation on all and any issues.

Citizens will not be allowed to make comments at the October 20, 2020 board meeting as required in the Rules of Order https://www.co.polk.wi.us/vertical/sites/%7BA1D2EAAA-7A29-46D6-BF1A-12B71F23A6E1%7D/uploads/Ord_13-20_Rules_of_Order_2020_5.5.20_FINAL_w_Appendix_A.pdf (Page 2 – lines 5 to 12). Under the Rules of Order comments are allowed “except in cases where public safety, public health or other emergent situation makes public comment impracticable.”

PLEASE TAKE FIVE MINUTES TO SEND AN EMAIL BY OCTOBER 20 @ 10 am!

You don’t need to be fancy. Just let the supervisors know that your right to speak directly to the board is important.

Send emails to County Clerk Ross: countyclerk@co.polk.wi.us

Clerk Ross will send your email the full board.
