Instruction for public comment participation
The public has the right to address the Commission and the Commission welcomes the public’s comments. The public may do so in three different ways:
(1) written comments, which will be entered into the permanent public record for the meeting; (2) speaking live to the Commission at the hearing location and (3) speaking live to the Commission remotely.
Further instruction on each method:
(1) Written public comment to the Commission may be submitted via the Commission’s Public Comment Portal, available at Michigan.gov/MICRC.
(2) Requests to speak live to the Commission at the hearing location will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open and in-person public comment sign-up will be available one hour before the meeting start time. Sign-up for in-person public comment will close at 8 p.m. the day of the hearing.
(3) Requests to speak remotely must be submitted via signup form available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ST5GHVZ. Individuals who wish to address the Commission remotely will be invited to speak on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the sign-up form). These individuals can expect to receive information about how to log-on to the webinar via the email they provide in the sign-up form. Sign-up for remote public comment will close at 12 p.m. the day of the hearing.
Each person who chooses to provide live or remote public comment will have up to two minutes to address the Commission.
